    Any guesses as to the breed of these chicks? I've have my suspicions, but I don't want to sway you ;) They came from a "mixed pullet bin" at Rural King and they had no idea. I have two of each.

    Feather footed light chicks - one slightly yellower than the other

    Red chicks, light bellies

    Dark and fluffy- this one reddish brown, other slightly blacker

    Thanks!

    The first one may be a Cochin or Brahma do to the feathered feet.

    How would I be able to differentiate if the light colored chick was a brahma or a cochin?

    I agree.

    Look at the comb as it comes in. Brahmas have pea combs, Cochins have single combs.

    I am guessing the first one is a light brahma. The feathering is light on the leg. ( I just got mine yesterday and yours looks just like mine)
    Second one is looking like a red sex link
    Third is a Partridge rock.

    Cool choices. Congrats!
