    I should NOT have stopped in the feed store today, but I did and came home with these 3 cuties! I have no idea what they are, but they are bantams!

    Aaawwww, SOO cute!!! I would bring those home too. I have to avoid all feed stores like the plague right now because now that we have 25, who(meaning my husband) would notice another couple babies? Especially tiny ones like bantams?! Congrats on your new little ones, they are just precious. I wish I could help you id the breeds, but I can only guess, and that guess would be cochin, RIR, and possibly a cochin or d'Uccle. Can't tell if one of those footed ones has a beard or not. And I think I am totally off base on the RIR. One thing I can tell you for a fact though, they are adorable!!!!

    I have one just like the red one! I thought it might be a gold sebright, but the comb looks like a single. So now I have no idea! [​IMG]

    The two with feathered feet look like a silver laced cochin and a golden laced cochin, but thats just a guess. But I do know that are super cute. I can go to the feed store all I want, because I would have to buy 12 chicks. That is the only way they sell them. If I came home with 12 chicks they would.....BE NOTICED!!!! [​IMG]

    The feathered legs could also be brahma's. I was old the difference is that a brahma only has feathers on one side of the leg. Cochins tend to have heavier feathering.

    All I know is that they were the hatchery choice assorted bantams. I asked if they had at least given a list of what breeds they sent. They said no list, nothing.
