    We've recently moved to our land and have started our chicken flock. Since we're new to all of this, we picked up 6 Bantam chicks at Tractor Supply that my wife thought were cute and we're not sure what the breeds are so if you guys could help us out, we would sure appreciate it. I think I know what a few of them are, here are pics of the little peeps.

    I think this might be a Black Frizzle?

    We're pretty sure that this is a Partridge Silkie (hope so, we'd really like a Silkie) but, it only has 4 toes so we'r enot 100% certain on that.

    I'm 99.9% sure this one is a Buff Brahma.

    This is the friendliest little guy of the bunch, and smaller than the others. I think it's Mille Fleur but, again I'm not certain.

    I've got no real clue on this one, maybe a Barred Plymouth Rock or an Easter Egger

    Same with this little one, I'm really not sure what it is.

    I appreciate any help you guys can offer. They're doing well 5 days in and growing like little weeds. It's been a lot of fun so far.

    Do they all have feathered feet?
    #1 does it have feathered feet? Could you get a better picture?
    #2 Cochin probably a Partridge Cochin
    #3 Does it have puffy cheeks? It is most likely a Brahma but I maybe a d'Uccle, also what type of comb?
    #4 Millie Fleur is a feather color not a breed, also I think it is probably a Old English Game of some sort though I'm not sure.
    #5 Looks like a black Cochin (is the reason you say maybe an EE because it has puffy cheeks?)
    #6 Could you get a better picture? Does it have feathered feet?

    Everybody has feathered feet except for #4 and #6. I'll see if I can get some better pictures today, my wife is back at the city house for a couple of weeks so I'm alone right now. It's not always easy to get them to sit still for photos without help. :)

    OK, here are some more pictures. Sorry the rotation is weird on some of these, I rotated and saved them on my PC and they're right but when I upload them they go back to the original rotation.

    #6 is probably also an Old English Game of some sort.
