    These two packing peanut roos have me stumped! Any thoughts? I am planning to grow them out just to see!

    I think the first is a gold laced cochin. I'm not sure about the second.

    I'm thinking the top is a Cochin as well...the bottom has a rosecomb...it may be a Wyandotte. There are a lot of colors of those...can't think what this will end up....maybe a Buff Columbian.

    My guesses

    Second one's anyone's guess. I'm not sure about the comb, but if the rose comb guess is correct, it's probably a Wyandotte. I can't recall any other popular (likely) LF breeds that have rose combs. Might be a blue laced red. I don't know of an hatcheries that sell buff Columbian Wyandottes though (though he does rather look like he might be a buff Columbian), Might also be mille fleur/porcelain depending on how bright that picture is relative to the actual chick ;)

    We'll have to wait and see how he feathers in.

    The first bird does look like a Golden Laced Cochin. I don't know what the second one is.

    It has feathered legs and feet. It's a cochin not a wyandotte. :)
