    I got what I thought were four silkies and two mystery chicks out of the assorted bantam bin today. I've now realized that in my excit[​IMG]ememt of finding fuzzy feet in the bantam bin I did not count toes and they only have four. :-( o believe I got cochins (?) And still no idea what the other two are. Here is a pic of all six. The two multi colored ones are what I'm curious about... [​IMG] Here is a side veiw of the mystery chicks [​IMG] Front view [​IMG] Here's a few pix of my fuzzy feet babies. Feel free to tell me what they may be. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    they grow up big and fat :)
    Not great layers, but excellent broodies and extremely friendly (as friendly as silkies)

    they are AWESOME!

    We have a grey cochin and she is turning out beautiful! She looked like the one you have with yellow head and grey back.
    They are adorable chicks.....would love to see how they turn out! We are new to chickens and have 9 all different - cochin, blue silkie, gold laced wyandotte, light brahma, ancona, blue marens, sicilian buttercup, americauna and welsummer.
    This pic was a couple of weeks ago when we first got her - her feathers are much fuller now and her feet look like she is wearing grey fluffy socks.
    Good luck!

    The chipmunk chicks might be Fayoumis, or EE. Others have gotten Fayoumis from TSC asst bantam bins recently. Though I don't think their heads usually have so many markings.
