    I know they are young but I'm hopping someone can maybe help me. Here is what I know they came from the assorted bantam bin the dark one is black on top and yellow/whitish belly the other is yellow with light redish on the head then a redish stripe down the center and darker brow stripes on the outside. they both have feathered legs and toes guessing cochin probably? any thoughts?[​IMG]

    Comb types? Maybe a closer picture of each chick individually? Toe count?

    Without seeing comb types or true to life colors, I would say the bigger chick is a partridge Cochin, but the smaller chick, I can't tell. More than likely a cochin as well. If it's true black chick down, probably black, if it's grayish, it's probably a white (weird as it sounds, whites are sometimes hatched very very dark). If it has a white dot on it's head, it has barring factor, which means it's a Barred Cochin.

    There is a pretty large size discrepency, so more information would be helpful for an accurate ID.

    Here are some more pics hope this helps, the black/yellow one is much smaller then the other, that one was one of the largest in the bin. They both have four toes with fur and pink/yellow skin and feet

    I'm going to stand by my original Partridge Cochin (though it's possibly and Golden Laced), and Black Cochin. Hopefully you'll get some more opinions soon.
