    I know that I come to the right spot because you are all so knowledgeable. I did have two more but they died today from an accident. So I am a bit sad. Maybe you can give me some cheering up by telling me about my others.

    I really don't know anything about bantams in general and esp. not feathered foot varieties but I think I have seen pics of silkies with feathers like that first one.

    My unprofessional opinion:

    1. Silkie for sure - not sure of the color - maybe partridge
    2. Blue - not sure but maybe EE/araucana?? Are the feet green?
    3. Not sure - maybe mille fleur? D'uccle?
    4. Not sure - maybe buff wyandotte?

    But they are all adorable!!!

    You are right, the first one is a silkie. I just looked the breed up online and it says that they have 5 toes instead of 4. So I went to look and sure enough, there were 5!

    First one looks like a partridge silkie, second maybe a blue old english, third look like it has feathered feet there for I would say a cochin of some variety, and the last one looks like a poor colored golden seabright.

    I am looking through the breed section and it looks like the last one might be a Nanking? Maybe?

    Check the leg color...I could be mistaken, but I think the nankins are fairly rare...

    What kind of comb does yours have? Nankins have either blue or white legs, yours has almost green/willow. I am still inclined to believe that you have a seabright ( which was derived from the Nankin more than likely)

    I'm not sure what I am looking for in the comb. I see a single straight comb, I think. And you are right, the legs do look like a willow/green. So I guess it is a seabright. It's just it's feathers are exactly like the Nanking and she looks just like those chicks pictured.
