Yesterday I got 4 crested Polish, each a different color and today I just couldn't resist to see if they had any new chicks (Not that I have 15 coming next week:oops:),
SOOOOO they had new Bantams. I am no expert at all, never had bantams but just had to pick out 2. I new the silkies since they have the 5 toes and black skin. I really want to have some Cochins, so I picked out 2 with feathered legs.......... PLEASE tell me what they are. Even if they are not Cochins they are adorable. Thought the Polish were tiny but this little guys are half the size

I would say the second one definitely is.

Does the top one have poofy cheeks and an extra toe? If so it could be a faverolles, if not it's a partridge cochin.

No 5. toe on any of the two. I really looked closely to make sure not to pick up a silkie. Not ready for those "creatures" ;-)
I would be thrilled with two Cochins........ hopefully hens, but we will see.

OK, just looked everywhere I could possibly find some information on this babies and know I am not so sure any more if they are really Cochins.
They might as well be a Porcelain and a Mille Fleur d'Uccle chick. Oh well, I guess time will tell...........
