    Hello. I am going to get two chicks for my son at the feed store. A buff Orpington and a Cochin. I am limited on the number of chickens I can have and I already have a gold-laced Cochin so I don't want another one. I'd love a silver laced but would be fine with a splash, blue or buff. Anyway, the people at the feed store said they know which ones are Cochins, but they don't know which chicks are which. :(

    Is the coloring on the chicks different enough that I can tell them apart? I tried google images and didn't have much luck.

    Thank you for any help you can provide.
