    I doubt they are Mille Fleur. Mille Fleur typically have a reddish down mixed in with that black and yellow. I'm betting on Cochins. The black and yellow birds look like black cochins. The yellow one(s) underneath look like either white or even buff cochins. (I'm leaning toward buff, because their wing feathers coming in look to have some orange coloring to them). Hope this helps! Be sure to post more pictures when they feather all the way in.

    Best,
    Caleb

    [​IMG] these 2 chicks have white feathers coming in. Does this mean they could be the mottled Cochins?? Or barred maybe ??
