    We ordered 25 assorted bantam cochins from Ideal and in the bunch recieved 2 that have chick coloring like a Brahma(maybe buff), I am just wondering what the color is called in Cochins or what they might look like as adults. as far as I know, no substitutions were made and nothing extra added so they should be Cochins.

    I didn't get any Really good pictures so here's all the decent ones I got.

    My guess would be silver laced. I went on Ideal's website and looked at the little chick pic drawings they include with each color, and silver laced was the only one that looked remotely close to your baby. Gosh they sure are cute!!! Enjoy them :)

    I agree with Silver-laced

    If you look at other hatcheries they have chicks like this as an example along with the more chipmunky ones.
