    This little guy (with that red comb I'm assuming cockerel!) is 4 weeks old. Definitely a bantam, and he has feathered feet. Some kind of Cochin maybe?

    Thanks! Do you think the white patch on his front will go away when he's all grown?

    Chicks go through multiple molts as they grow, so feather color changes.

    I'm in love with this little guy! So tiny next to the others the same age, but so feisty. And also loves cuddles.
