    Hello.
    Can anyone help me identify this chick?
    It's 3 weeks old and has feathered feet.

    I don't know much about chickens.. Are those large chickens?
    Those chicks that look like that are larger than the leghorns and speckled sussex chicks that where from the same hatch.​

    I agree that it is a Gold Laced Cochin. Cochins come in both regular and bantam sizes, so you'll have to wait for it to grow in order to figure out which.

    If they are already bigger than other standard size breeds, it's likely that they are standard sized as well. Most hatcheries don't mix standard and bantam together in the same box or area as bantam size chicks are substantially smaller and can sometimes be crushed.

    FYI, that one's a boy... [​IMG]
