    So I bought this chick from the feed store. They said it was a bantam Cochin. However they were also selling crested polish at the time. I don't know if Cochins ever have crested top feathers or if any polish created have five toes and feet feathers.

    Anyway these two are totally joined at the wing. I'm hoping the white on is a roo, but since he has no comb it's hard. I'd love opinions. [​IMG]

    I'm new and absolutely love my babies!! [​IMG][/IMG]

    I agree that it is a sultan. Looks like it may be a little cockerel with all that red coming in so young!
