    OH MY those are just the cutest little babies. I have no idea what they could be but am curious.
    Is one perhaps a cochin bantam?
    I see feathers on those tiny legs in the next to the last pic.

    I have no idea I got the bantam mix special they had at Christmas. So I'm trying to find out what they are I ordered a hundred of these mixed special. They all ate pure breeds but just a who knows what you get surprise I hope the last one is a Cochin it is. So cute and cuddly. Hope someone can help me out. Have a lot more that I need help identifying. I was real lucky I received some of their bantam blue wyandottes that they just tarted selling. So I am totally excited about those. Can't wait to find out what else I have

    That little one in the next to last picture with the feathered legs is a Silkie, not a Cochin. Cochins have yellow legs and skin, Silkies are black. That little chicky should also have 5 toes on each foot and a crest (and could be bearded or not). Yours looks like a partridge. I have no idea what the others are...besides stinkin' adorable. It looks like the first chick has green legs, maybe its a bantam EE? Good luck with your cute peepers!

    You really can't tell as they come in all shapes and sizes. I have white yellow and red silkies. I also have white red and black cochins. I also have several other wild Bantom foul including new England. Many of them look the same as babies and you can only tell in about 4 to 6 weeks when all of their plumage is in. It's safe to say that if the chick only has feathers on its feet it is likely a Cochin. A Silke likely has a pom-pom on its head and feathers on its feet.
