    I thought these 5 week old chicks were cochin bantams, but then I read a thread that said all cochins have yellow legs. These two both have dark legs, and one looks like it may be a frizzle. Both are supposed to be pullets. Thank you in advance for any input.

    I purchased the Ornamental Layer assortment from Murray McMurray, so they shouldn’t be a cross based on their description.

    Any chance they could be Belgian D’Uccle? Porcelain or white maybe?

    They are probably just badly bred Cochins, since they are from a hatchery.

    Thank you for the input. I’m ok with less than show quality chickens. I want to have fresh eggs and fluffy friends, so it’s all good.
