    #1-2 could be D'uccle.(Dont usually get any other colors of cochins besides white/black/blue/self blue/red from hatcheries).Depending on what hatchery they came from.... #3 (silver laced) could be Sebright OR Old English.#4 Old English.(BB Red or duckwing . On sex...#3-4 looks like possible pullets...#1 looks like a lil comb coming up possibly...not sure on #3...

    Thank you for all the replys so far....#2 has a good comb coming in ....but #1 has a small one that is lighter in color..and ( i hope a HER) feathers in person are White with a trace of silver tone.....if that helps....and i PRAY they are ALL BANTAMS...cause i was told they ALL were...and that is what we wanted...lol
    And Yes #3 Is my favorite (her name is Pepper) and she is a LOUD mouth ...LOL
    #1 LOVES to try and fly and is playful (hoping is a Hen)
    #2 (named Tweety) Is SOOOOO LOVING....loves to cuddle..yet is very protective over the other 3
    #4 (named Arrow) is also Loving, and goes with the flow of things
    I also think that #1, 3, 4 are Hen and that #2 is Roo...????? [​IMG]
