    Got the pics up...had to try it differently this time...but...I have four 1 1/2 week old feather footed bantams that have muffs and maybe beards (I am pretty sure they have beards). They are all the same breed so only 1 chicks appears in these pics. The store has bought from Ideal before but I don't know if they got this order from the same place, anyway here are the pics finally Pictures follow....
    TY!!!

    Without pics, I don't know, but maybe a Barbu d'uccle?[​IMG] This is a hen...[​IMG]
    And a rooster. They come in other colors too, but if you just look at the characteristics you can probably tell if it's your bird.

    OH...no extra toes.
    and come to think of it, it appears to have a single comb!

    That would be nice! I have 4 so maybe there will be a pair. I tried to pick by comb size. Two have combs that are a bit bigger than the other two. I think 1 roo 1 pullet and the other two maybe a roo and maybe a pullet but not as sure on those.
    Thanks!!!

    Mille fleur D'Uccles. Mille fleur is the color and D'Uccle is the breed. Some hatcheries sell them as "Mille Fleurs" and "Porcelains" rather than "D'Uccles". (kind of like the whole Ameraucana/Americana/Araucana vs EE thing)
