    The feather-legged bantam looks to be cochin, and the bottom two do look cornish. The bottom look like roos, by the way.

    Actually I know the bottom one's sexes (3 is hen and 4 is roo) and I know they're cornish. I'm just puzzeled about the first two. And the first I'm pretty sure isn't a cochin. By the way they're all bantam.

    idk, i'm now thinkin #1 is possibly a cross between a belgium quail hen and a d'uccle roo... still have no clue what #2 is (possibly half quail too)
