    I just bought these chickens and duck and have no idea what breed they are. all of them (except for the duck) have feathered feet and the baby chicks hatched when the brown hen went broody before i bought her. Any ideas? thanks!

    The brown hen looks like a partridge cochin. The other might be a buff cochin. The chick is probably a cochin or cochin cross then.

    Thanks everyone! and i think i may have pure or close to pure partridge cochin chicks.. when we bought them they came with a roo who was also a partridge cochin! Do the chicks look more like a buff cochin or partridge cochin? And i am loven the duck [​IMG]

    I agree an Ancona. They are white with spotted black on there body, bills, and feet.

    A Magpie is white with a patch of black on there back and on the top of the head.

    Sorry can't help with the chicks but I can tell you they are SO cute.

    Quote:Im sure they arent completely pure but they are either half Buff cochin or not a half because the roo was a partridge cochin and so was the hen that went broody. i looked at feathersite and noticed that some of the partridge chicks on there where lighter like mine and others darker? I also noticed in one of the pics a partridge chicks feathering colors on their wing is the same color/pattern as mine. Although ming probably are mutts lol.

    Actually the more i think about it, the chicks seem to resemble some of the baby chick traits of the Buff cochin and some of the partridge. Maybe i got a pure cochin but a not pure color? [​IMG]
