    I got two adorable chickies at the NEBC swap meet. The woman who owned the chicks wasn't there when I bought the babies so I didn't get a chance to ask her their age or breed.

    Here's the first one:

    And here's the second:

    Thanks for your help on this one.
    Oh, and they are bantams, I know that much.

    The second one is probably a cochin, otherwise I would guess a light Brahma, but those are large fowl. I would a guess they were under a week old.

    OK, from my research, I think I have (#1) a Golden-Laced Cochin and (#2) a Light Brahma. Age is approximately about 5 days.... [​IMG] I'm going with 5 days. [​IMG]

    The bottom two look like mottled cochins.

    I'd have to say that there all cochins. The middle one is probably a black cochin. It's what mine looked like when it was a baby.

    But it's just a guess

    There's only 2 chicks, 2 pictures of each one.
    I think the first one is a GLC and the other, I hope, is a mottled...I love the mottled. I, at first, thought the second was a light brahma, but after someone posted that they thought is was a mottled, I thought...sure!

    They are definately not brahmas. It is a mottled cochin.

    Golden Laced and Mottled Cochin banties. Oh, they're so CUTE!!!
    Your're making me have happy memories about my sweet mottled babies!!! [​IMG] Good luck with them!
    Age: two-three weeks, probably.

    The second one is probably a cochin, otherwise I would guess a light Brahma, but those are large fowl. I would a guess they were under a week old.

    Actually, my best friend owns bantam Light Brahmas. Sweet boogers, but their heads are much coarser, and her chicks have single combs.​
     

  10. Im not sure on the breed but on the age a week maybe two
