    Hello all! I purchased these little cuties at TSC the other day, thinking I was getting Silkies. When I got home, I found that they had feathered legs, but light colored legs, not dark, as I had requested. I have three of them, and they seem to have a grayish cast to their fluff, and highly feathered legs.

    Any guesses on what breed they might be? I would love if they are Bantam Cochins.

    Oh the cuteness! They are so calm also.

    What color are their feathers that are coming in?
    Cochin is a good guess. But I'm thinking maybe porcelain D'Uccles.
    Phone issues so I can't see pics as well as I'd like.

    Thank you! I did some research after I posted this, and saw they may be Porcelains indeed. I’m sure I will know better in a few weeks. :hugs

    Third one is a silkie. Blackish feet, blueish earlobes, it's all there, others are little porcelains.
