    TSC special bantam chicks. I got 2 mille's, 2 golden seabrights, and then these two. The first pic is of (I think an OEGB) but I would like to know what kind so I can start searching for some friends for her. She is the smallest chick I've ever seen (haven't seen serama chicks yet). She has clean legs. The second is the tank of the bantams and has feathered legs- cochin or brahma I'm thinking but wingfeathers that are coming in are different than any type of cochin or brahma that I have ever seen.

    I can't help a whole lot but I don't think that 2nd chick is a Brahma, and probably not a Cochin. Awfully cute though! [​IMG]

    I'm gonna guess the second is a Light brahma bantam. It could also be a Columbian cochin bantam, but those aren't exactly common...

    I went through every page of the 61 pages of chochin pics and didn't see anything like charlie, but he is also not looking like a brahma.........

    Not a mille- about twice the size of the mille's and the wrong color as a chick. IF it's a mille cochin I will be in absolute HEAVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is one of my mille chicks- pic taken at the same time as first pics.

    Oh and I called Mt Healthy again today and the lady said that they could be ANYTHING as they just get assorted bantam eggs from breeders.

    I just received an email from Mt Healthy Hatchery- Tiny is a BBred which is cool since I just bought a really cute adult pair. They have no clue on the feather footed bantam.

    I was going to guess BBred for the first. The other has long Hock feathers but Is not the mille Duccle color chicks. might be mixed or might be Mille Cochin [​IMG]
