    I can't seem to figure out what color these two birds are [​IMG]
    Chick 1: Bantam cochin that when I got him, looked like a birchen chick. Now it has the white coloring coming in on the back of his head like a birchen BUT he has gold splashes on his wings! What color is he?! He is also feathering in soooo slow, my other cochins are almost fully feathered now at 4 weeks and he has just started sprouting feathers [​IMG]

    Now chick 2: I believe is a OEGB, just not clear on her color. Looked like it was going to be a barred OEGB when I first got her. Now she has spots and lacing!
