    I've posted this chick along with another bantam in an earlier post but didn't get only one guess on its breed. Some people said a type of cochin bantam, some say booted bantam, and I had others say a mille fleur d'uccle bantam. If any one can say for sure what this little one may be that would be great :)

    Also if anyone needs better pictures I can take some more.

    Cute but not really sure on breed...probably will have to wait until it is older to know for sure but the breeds you mentioned all sound like strong possibilities.

    'Booted bantam' is usually used for lesser quality d'uccle, from what I've seen. Yours looks like a cochin to me. Too light for mille fleur, maybe partridge.

    Probably a Mille fleur D’Uccle if I had to guess because those foot feathers look long already. Also known as a booted bantam. Could be a cochin, but time will tell.

    Darn! I was hoping I could know it's breed so I know what kind of bantam this baby will grow into. Maybe we will just have to name this little guy mystery :love

    Guess I'm still getting different opinions. At least i have an idea on what this baby could be.

    If you post new photos at 8 weeks of age, when it will be full feathered out, it should be easier to tell just what. Adorable chick BTW.

    It's feathered just like my d'uccles. My vote is booted d'uccles.

    Thats what some people are saying but others are saying cochin! I personally like the d'uccles more and that seems to be what most people think he/she is.
