    I got a bunch of assorted bantams from tractor supply and these two appeared to be buff or red Cochins at first. Then their feathers started coming in and I don't think I've seen Cochins quite this color. They have feathered feet and what I think are called "vulture hocks"? Any ideas? Mille fleur Cochins perhaps? (Pardon the brooder mayhem in the background).

    Awww... Was kinda hoping they'd keep the spotted ombre thing they had going. Fun to look at in the meantime though. Thanks!
    P.S. Finding the username combo we've got going on highly amusing lol.

    I have chicks that look just like this! Been trying to figure out the color. Mine didn’t come from Tsc but a local feed store.

    I have 2 red bantam cochins chicks but one of them has dark skin and the other light. I will take pics tomorrow. Is that common in cochins?

    They are red. Most look like this when they are young. Their color will even out in the next molt.
