    Hi, I received an order of bantam cochins today. These are my first cochins I've ever owned and I need help figuring out the breeds. I've taken some guesses. Here's a picture of most of them;

    If they are all cochins, they are the same breed, just different colors

    Ah, I should say I need help identifying the colors then. Good point! Thanks for your help with the colors! I love the blues! Wouldn't the blues include black and splash? I think one chick is yellow with a faint gray chipmunk pattern -- could that be splash?

    yes, the light blue one could be splash, they are usually a whiteish blue, almost yellow. You could have also gotten a self blue(lavendar), but those chicks should be solid pale blue, almost the same color and adult would be. Your buffs could be red, Ideal has both in bantam

    1: Either black or Mottled. Amount of white on the baby makes me lean more towards mottled but you won't know until they grow a bit

    2: white

    3: Probably Buffs

    4: Either splash or lavender

    5: Partridge

    6: Black

    7: That's a very odd looking chick. Doesn't look like any specific variety I've ever seen in cochins

    8: Blue

    9: The closest I can think of is indeed Silver Laced, but the chick looks really light in color to be that. I guess we'll see when it grows

    I took more pictures today. I sold a few of the chicks and set a few of the blue / black / splash ones aside for me :)

    Here's what's left -

    7 Partridge Cochins?
