    Would anyone like to help me guess as to the breeds?

    I tried to match like chicks together. They at least have the same comb if they are together.

    #1 Single comb
    [​IMG]

    #2 Single comb
    [​IMG]

    #3 There actually two that are like this but the other one is smaller, has pinker legs and beak, and does not have a single comb. Edit add picture of second one.

    #4 Is a white silkie and I am desperately hoping it's a girl, but he already has an impressive comb for a chick and is larger then the other chicks, we'll see lol

    I don't know but a lot of them look like cochin to me. #12 looks like a d'uccle, #3 looks like a self blue OEG, you are, of course, right on the silkie.

    Can you post what kinds of combs they have?

    I do better on the feather legged chicks than clean legged. These are my guesses without knowing comb types:

    #1 Silver Pencilled Cochins (I have raised these. They mature really slowly. I kept thinking my two were boys due to lack of feathers. They were ugly until about 9 weeks old.)
    #2 Dark Brahma?
    #3 Self Blue old english
    #4 looks more like a Buff Silkie
    #5 Black cochins
    #6 Red Cochin (mine were not very red, had sparse leg feathering more of a dark buff at maturity.)
    #7 Golden Laced old enlish
    #8 Partridge Cochin
    #9 Silver Laced Cochin
    #10 Light Brahma or Mottled Cochin (What kind of comb do they have?)
    #11 Might be another Silver Penciled. Mine had a little variability in chick patterning.
    #12 Golden Laced Cochin or Mille fluer D'uccle
    #13 Black Tailed Buff Japanese
    #14 Buff Cochin
    #15 Red Cochin
    #16 Red Cochin
    #17 White Japanese or White Cornish?


    In the shipment I got two weeks ago, I got 17 cochins. I was so excited since they are my favorite.

    A good way to help figure what they are is to go through and make a list of the breeds they have available and are not sold out of. They replace their breeding stock ever summer I believe so if it says sold out at this point, they probably really are out until their new breeders start to lay again. I think I ordered a few specific chicks about a month ago and lost a few in shipping and was told they could not replace them and could only refund them because those types were done for the year.

    #3 is without a doubt a Self Blue OEGB as the other two posters mentioned. I have had dozens of those sweet little babies.

    Thank you everyone who has been guessing! This is my first time with bantams other then silkies, and never feather footed babies! Keep guessing everyone, I'll keep up with this and when we know who everyone is I'll post who guessed closest!
