To be 100% truthful i’m even considering going back for more. After looking at these little guys i’m guessing I have a few silkies, a few mottled cochin bantams, and one white crested black polish. Can anyone with more experience weigh in on what they think the breeds might be? Thank you!

    I think your guesses were pretty much spot on! Good job. :thumbsup I see a single White Crested Black Polish, 3 Mottled Cochins, and a mix of White and Splash Silkies. :)

    Thank you so much @Alexandra33! I feel better knowing a more experienced eye sees the same breeds I do! Now i’m going to obsessively hover over them every second of the day haha.

    You're so very welcome! :) I don't know if I'm exactly what you'd call "experienced" yet, but I've had a lot of bantams. :p
    Yes yes, go enjoy your little beauties!!! :love They're simply precious.
