    Of the feather-footed bantams there are 4 main breeds, d'Uccles, Cochins, Silkies, and Brahmas. If you don't have any chicks with black/blue faces then they are probably not silkies and you can eliminate that breed. After that you just have to go digging through pictures of chicks to try and find out what variety they most resemble. The one sitting on the lip of your brooder there looks like a dark Brahma to me.

    x2 Another thing to help you find out if it is a d'Uccle, a Cochin, or a Brahmas are: Cochins have single combs, Brahmas have pea combs, and d'Uccles have "puffy" cheeks.
