    Hi all

    I have recently hatched some chicks under my Orpington who went broody.

    She is a really good Mum and her chicks are now 5 & a half weeks old.

    The eggs were given to us by someone who has bantams & I'm unsure as to what breed/sex they are.

    They are beautiful though!

    Can anyone help?

    I am guessing that numbers one and two are bantam cochins.

    The third one I am not sure about, maybe a bantam columbian wyandotte...can't see the comb though.

    The first two birds are cochins. The last one looks like a Light Sussex, but I can't tell if the comb is a single comb or a rose comb. If it was a rose comb, she may be a Columbian Wyandotte with the wrong color legs.

    The first chick is a black cochin bantam, the second a lavender cochin bantam, and the last one is either a light sussex or columbian wyandotte bantam.

    Hi Everyone

    Thanks for your replies.

    I've tried to get a cleared picture of her/his comb
