    Hey all I said a while back that I would post pics of the birds I got from Ideal when they were running the 25 assorted bantams for .99. Well they are about a month old and I was only able to get pics of a few of them all the others refused to hold still long enough for me to get a photo. I ended up with like 8 Frizzled cochins, 1 not sure if it's barred or birchen cochin, what appears to be 2 partridge cochins, 1 Mottled cochin I think, a few other colored one and 2 silkies 1 white and 1 black. Not sure what what the other ones are. I have a couple of pics of a couple wondering if you guys had any idea. Well enough of me talking on to the pics

    The first couple of pics are of the only white frizzle I got. It's the prettiest one out of all the frizzles and one of my favorites overall


    This pic is of what I believe to be one of the partridge cochins.

    This is the one I think is either Barred or Birchen

    This is one of the ones I'm not sure about can't really tell from the pic but it's got black skin and like a really light blue feather color

    This last one is another one I have no idea about. It stands more upright and has longer legs than the rest. It's legs are alot bigger around than any other birds.

    The last photo certainly looked like a Dark Cornish bantam.

    Cute chicks! I love the white frizzle. I agree with the other poster, it is definitely a male.

    Your fourth photo isn't a barred or birchen cochin, it a silver pencilled cochin and it has pullet coloring! Silver pencilled cockerels have different markings at that age. I have raised most of Ideals Bantam Cochin colors. If t isn't a Silver pencilled cochin, it is a bantam dark brahma. What kind of comb does it have? And you are right, that is a partridge cochin.

    I love Ideal's bantam specials. However, I generally only keep the cochins and sell the rest.

    Cornish should not be having bright yellow legs like that.
