    My mom got her first babies and we would love to know what breeds they are. We got them today at Atwoods (farm store) in the mixed breeds section (straight run..ACK!)

    Will number them so you can help out. If we need better pics, we can get those for you too.

    #1 (my daughter is desperately hoping this is a silky..lol)

    #4 (a little bitty tiny amount of black on the tips of the wing feathers. Otherwise very yellow bird)

    Are they bantam or LF?

    Oh and #1 is a splash cochin. Silkies have 5 toes and black skin.

    Number 1 looks like a cochin of some sort although cant say what kind. Definetly got the feather feet for it and fluffy. But doesnt look like a silkie at all...silkies have that distinct look to em. As for the others I have no clues

    #1 Looks a lot like our Light Bramas:

    If yours is tell your daughter they are two of our very sweetest girls. When I got home from running errands today one of them ran over to me and perched on my arm and the other pecked my fingers gently.

    and #2 could be an Australorp or Black Giant.
