    I picked these random little bantam chicks that came from Ideal. The first one is feather-legged; I'm thinking its a Light Brahma or Blue Cochin. The second is smooth-legged, no clue what it is. What do ya'll think?

    Thanks so much Stormhorse! I had a Light Brahma chick last fall, but I thought this one looked a little different. I was hoping for some variety, so I'm glad. [​IMG]

    Here is my diagnosis

    Chick #1
    Definitely not a blue cochin. Colored more like a black one. Let me think on it.

    Chick #2
    Looks kind of like an ancona. But has less black? [​IMG]

    Here's a pic of all the babies, I took it just now. The two black/yellow on the left are standard White Crested Black Polish, the butterscotch on the bottom right is a Mille Fleur d'Uccle.
