    I am so happy all 6 of my first set of chickies have made it to their one week birthday!! I am still clueless as to what they are for sure (all came from assorted bantam box at TSC) Still more than happy to get some guesses!!

    Dixie ay 8 days <3
    I know this pic looks rough but it wasnt, she is peeping and flapped her wings and i was lucky enough to get this shot of her new wing feathers coming in and color. I LOVE her golden mask...still have ZERO clue as to what she is! (praying she is a she!!)

    Sweet Daisy May (one of the "twins", she is SO friendly! She likes to peep and walk right up to your face to get a better look! I am pretty sure now she and Ellie May are Mottled Cochin Bantams.

    Miss (i HOPE!!!) Sara with TONS of new wing feathers and even some tail feathers coming in. She is the one I am most confused on what she is. Most confident of the group, she is bigger than them all. I LOVE her colors!!!

    Beautiful Princess Lay-a, has THE best fuzzy feet ever!!! Still clueless as to what she is as well. Sweetest baby ever! Has TONS of wing feathers and feet feathers coming in, love her white splash under he chin and belly! dark dark skin, almost solid black beak as well. Any guesses on her would still be very helpful!

    My little under developed sweetheart, Lolly Pop. Still hardly any new feathers, hasnt grown a whole lot, but is friendly, playful, and eats constantly! With her silvery blue color and yellow splash face and furry feet I have zero idea what she is! Guesses?

    Last but not least, Ellie May, with her signature beauty mark by her eye. Not a whole lot of "big girl feathers" but she is growing well, and is sweet and friendly and a good eater! One of my "twins".

    And the new set up inside!

    You are right about the twins being mottled cochins. The first one is possibly a golden laced cochin. Not sure about the coloring. My TSC cochins look a lot like yours. I guess it is a Georgia TSC thing. LOL. It will be interesting to see what the black chick turns out to be. I was told TSC never get silkies but i don't think they know what they are going to get. They are all very adorable. [​IMG]

    Here are my two cochins.
