    Did you ever find out what your chicken was? Because I have 6 chicks that I think are bantams, and I originally thought they were Cochins because of their feathery feet. Then I read a post that said that Cochins had yellow feet and that Langshans have darker legs and eyes. Well, mine has darker legs and eyes[​IMG]

    I'm now thinking I have a Langshan, possibly bantam. Any thoughts as to whether or not I'm right??

    Thanks for any thoughts or ideas!!

    Kinda looks like my Gold Laced Cochins. These are all females. They had dark legs too when they were small, then turned yellow later.

    Here are my chicks. They looked a lot like the one at the beginning of this thread, but they're feet have always been dark, grey to black. Never yellow. At first I thought they might be bantams, but they've grown enough now, I'm sure they're large fowl. I'm pretty certain they are both Langshan roosters. I also have 4 more than I think are hens, blue to black.
    The black, Billy Flynn is his name, is getting some lovely iridescence in his feathers and so is one of my pullets.
    I also have 6 red pullets. RIRs, and they are very sweet, but my heart is with my Langshans. I just LOVE the feathery feet.
