    Let me begin with what were sent from MM in the bantam assortment:
    #1- 8wk, going through REALLY ugly phase, but is what I think might be a hatchery quality Turken/NN cockerel?

    My opinions are below:

    #1 Rhode Island Red Bantam
    #2 Partridge Rock Bantam
    #3 white jap
    #4 & #5 no idea, but love the mix of colors in those feathers

    Yep-#2 has a single comb not a rose comb so it's a Rock not a Wyandotte.
    #3's legs are WAAAY too long to be a Jap. If you can see under a Jap it's legs are too long.
    #4 I'm sure of though-it's a chicken![​IMG]

    I agree that #1 is an RIR, the others I have no clue about. I also have an EE with yellow legs, so while green seems to be the most common leg color on EEs, it certainly isn't the only color.

    I still think #3 is a Jap. Remember this a hatchery bird, so that explains the abnormally long legs.

    Based on his stance and build, I don't think he's a jap, but I could be wrong LOL

    Do you think they get those mohawks from being cross bred with a silkie? I have a 6 week old white mystery chicken who has a "fan" on his head that started like the one you have with a mohawk. He also seems to have different neck feathers although the rest of his feathers look the same. He is also very soft compared to my RIR. Yours is the first bird I have seen with that mohawk besides mine.

    Yours could be a polish. The reason i said silkie x is because of the crest, feathered legs, dark skin, and comb.

    Do you have pics of your chick?

    Here is some pictures I just went out and took - it looks like a similiar mohawk to no. 4 - I think I might repost him so i am not hijacking Normajeans thread.
