    I purchased 5 Golden Laced Bantam Cochins Monday [​IMG] I became more concerned over a few critters a saw going in and out of their fluff on the first day and then today noticed one of my chicks is lacking furry feet. All the rest have furry feet. They are all approximately 3-5 days old and supposedly came from the same clutch...but now I'm doubting [​IMG]

    Here are a few pics of her/him:[​IMG]

    If I indeed do not have a cochin...what could it be? TIA [​IMG]

    It's not a cochin. Looks more like a GLW.

    Quote:Not a Sebright. Leg color is wrong and too dark. Not enough gold coloring around the head.

    Are they from a hatchery, or from a private party?

    Quote:From a person who was selling them over Craigslist. He had the mother and father seperated so I could see them and he talked as though they all came from the same batch. Hmmmm...well I got a surprise out of the bunch. Watch, that will end up being my only hen [​IMG]

    I agree that it looks like a golden laced wyandotte. What kind of comb does it have?

    If it still has a single comb, I would still think that it is a Cochin. I ordered Silkies from a hatchery and one of the five lacked the feathery feet, and one other lacked the top hat. Hatcheries do have the best stock. If the comb looks a little different then the other chicks (should be completely flat) then a Gold Laced Wyandotte is a good guess.

    Good luck, you may just have to wait and see how she/he grows, and go on body shape.
