    I picked up some chicks from TSC this past weekend. [​IMG] They came from the assorted bantams bin. I have three like this one. Anyone have any guesses as to what kind it is?

    TXTiffany, your guy's feathers are growing in buff colored, so he's definitely buff. I think he is a Buff Cochin bantam.

    Here's pics of Buff Cochin chicks from google images search:

    Buff Brahma chicks:

    Light Brahma chicks (notice how their feathers are coming in black and white):

    My chick does look a lot like the first picture.

    Here is a picture of another one that I have. It came from the same bin.
