    Darn the feed stores! I go for a larger feeder for the babies I already have at the house, and come home with four new bantams and a standard!

    Bird #1: zebra striped, clean legs. This baby has a rose comb.

    Bird #2: blue or red? Feather legged, single comb. This one appears to have muffs.

    Bird #3: black, feather footed, single comb

    Bird #4: silver/gray lavender? feathers coming in, appears to have muffs. Feather legged.

    Quote:I think you're right, the 3rd chick does look more like a mottled cochin than a black one...

    It might be silver laced, too. I had one that looked exactly like it and it was silver laced, though everyone here said mottled. [​IMG]
    Is the last chick gray? It looks white to me. If it's gray, I guess porcelain is most likely. I had a white d'Uccle chick that ended up being a golden neck.

    By the way, the second one has already earned a name...pretzel. She is needy, and doesnt like to be left alone. If she knows someone is around, she crys till she gets picked up, then quickly quiets and begins making happy chickie noises. <3
