    I just got these 3 bantams. I am new to the chicken world, so I am still trying to learn. I was told they were Cochin and that they were around 3 months old. The brown one has a tuft on his head. The one has the feathered legs like the Cochin. The smaller one has no feathering at all on her legs. The brown one is just starting to get some feathering. If anyone might have an idea I would appreciate it. Thanks

    they just look like mixes. Not cochins for many reasons, but one thing is if it was a cochin it would be quite a bit bigger by now. cochin bantams are on the larger side of bantams. they do not have tufts on their heads, and should have feathered legs
