    Ordered several chicks. Can't figure out which is which! Is this a Buff Brahma Bantam or Mille Fleur d'Uccle Bantam?

    Hey hey hey congrats on your new babys! [​IMG]

    Gosh that must be confusing plus the names are a blimin mouthful [​IMG]


    Anyway back on track.... that little baby looks like a Mille Fleur d'Uccle Bantam judging by the feathers on her tweeny legs [​IMG] A Buff Brahma Bantam usually has feathers on their feet not there legs and feat... Hopefully that helps [​IMG]


    Cheers

    Not trying to hijack this post but I got chicks as well today and was told mine were the millfluer (or however you spell them [​IMG]) bantams. But she had ones that looked like yours too and she quickly said they were buff brahmas. Did she get them wrong??[​IMG]

    1st chick might be a mottled D'Uccle, but it doesn't look bearded. Mottled Cochin maybe?

    It's not bearded at all. It actually might be a Mottled Cochin Bantam or a Black Frizzle Cochin Bantam.

    It looks like she has a single comb. She also has feathers on her toes, not just on her legs.

    It is a D'uccle since it is bearded. :)
