    I was lucky enough to get 3 bantams from Orschlens today. They said they were about one week old. I think they come from Estes Hatchery. They're all feather footed. Any clues as to what breeds? I'm guessing either Buff Cochin, Partridge Cochin or [​IMG] Millie Fleurs. (And hopefully hens - they were all straight run.) Any guesses as to what they are? (I'll plan to post an update once they're older.)

    Here is an updated photo. I'm wondering if the darker one looking straight at the camera (with the more pronounced crown) is a roo. (We're hoping for 3 hens.) Or if he is a roo, hopefully a quiet one. At this point I think they are all Mille Fleurs but not certain.

    Red Cochins. Their feather color will even out as they grow. You were lucky to get one rooster and two pullets from straight run!
