    I thought these were just regular white or buff cochin bantams but they have tuffs now??!! what could they be. their not exactly white, but their not exactly buff. I need help. are they just hatchery mutts? they are currently 6 weeks old (nearly 7 weeks) and I am doing my best to hold them every day...but they would rather I didn't. any help would be appreciated

    they aren't as heavily feathered on the leggs as their black cochin brooder mates. they have 4 toes and lightly colored leggs. not yellow, but almost whitish/pink. I am stumped [​IMG]

    Looks like a pair of some type of D'Uccle... Can't tell the color though... too yellow to be a Porcelain

    aren't the d'uccle bearded? these aren't bearded....yet anyways.

    I checked feather site, and if anything they could be buff mottled....but I just don't see that coming from a hatchery

    Could they be Gold Necked D'uccle? Where did you get them?

    So where did you get them? [​IMG]

    Actually, I don't see enough puff around the bottom of the face. GN Booted Bantams, perhaps?

    Quote:Yes, they are bearded. They just don't have really large, full beards like Faverolles and such.

    Look on feathersite at the GN D'Uccles... I'll bet that's what these are. But mine are more bearded than these....

    I got them from TSC and my store goes through privett hatchery.

    I though out of all the d'uccle on feather site mine looked a lot like the gold neck and the buff mottled. I am kind of excited that these could be something so different than what I first though! I got the bantams to expand the diversity of my flock of mostly RSL chickens. I guess we shall see how they turn out. they are still pretty young, so only time will tell. maybe I will contact privett and see if they can give me a list of feathered legged bantams that they have
