    I got some more chicks today from TSC. I don't think I'll be going there again, it's been pretty depressing. The woman gave me two dying chicks (I asked for them), plus 4 others. The Bantams were hidden in the middle so I couldn't see them.

    There are three little silver Bantams, all the same. Pink skin, black beaks, black feathered feet.

    Any ideas?

    Yep, lavender cochins! Thanks. One has bare legs, and the other two have feathered legs. Cute little buggers.

    Doubt the nonfeather legged one is a cochin, could be a old englih game bantam

    The one without feathers on it's legs, is exactly the same colour as the other two. Interesting to know!

    Look closely at thier legs. It's possible that the other chicks have been picking on them, and tore the feathers off of their legs. If the legs are smooth and nothing is wrong with them, then they are most likely OEGBs

    The colour doesn't show well on the picture, but they are all silvery.
