    OK, so I'd say yes to feathered feet on chickies coming out of each pair. The first dad...I have no clue, but the second dad looks like a frizzled. Soooooo cute. But dad #1 is so handsome. You will have some SERIOUSLY cute babies on your hands. Are they all your birds? Are you hatching out some eggs? If you are hatching out the eggs, I would love to get 5 day olds. Especially from the Frizzled mixes.

    The first rooster is a buff couchin. I had one just like him, he was georgeous. He the one in my little picture. The grey one I would say is a silky. Not sure about the rest.

    Yes, I am hatching some eggs. [​IMG] the little silkie went broody so I let her sit on some eggs. They all hatched yesterday and this morning. 7 or 8 little babies and they are just soo cute.

    They are a mix of the sets of chickens above and also I have another black and another white chook in with the frizzle rooster so added some of their eggs too. I think 8 eggs all up.

    There are some great black/white speckled chicks too that i have yet to take a photo of.
