    I have never owned chickens a day in my life! However I recently got attached to a baby chick and wanted to bring it home... I ended up with 6 and there are 2 with feathers on their feet. There's one that the feathers are really getting big. (Pictured) They are 12 days old. Can anyone tell me what kind I have?[​IMG]

    It's hard to tell from the picture, it could be a Cochin, but ours have been really slow to feather and have very minimal feathers at two weeks, definitely not that much. We have Light Brahmas that look like that (as far as I can tell from the picture) and have feathered feet, though. Maybe one of those?

    It's a Belgian Bearded d'Uccle for sure! Check out the beard and muffs on that guy! Can't tell from the picture but I'll bet ya $10 that he has vulture hocks [​IMG] As far as coloring goes??? I'd say Mille Fleur, but his feathering in wrong for a mille fleur. Maybe a mix? Where did you get him?
