    I'm editing because I thought there was 3 and then I realized the first picture if the buff one's feet up close.
    Some of my cochin chicks have extremely fuzzy feet and some have those little whispers of feathers.

    The fluffy feathering on the feet is bit odd.....similar to my Light Brahma chick.....

    my chicks have the feathery feet and are pekins.

    dunno if that helps at all, but I can also add pics to help if that be any easier?

    Interesting if they are bantam that someone would tell you they were female? my understanding is you cannot sex banties because they're too small. The black one does look like a cochin. I don't know about the buff one, maybe buff brahma or some kind of cross?
