    DH surprised me with some TSC assorted bantams on Thursday. We have five like Chick #1, three like Chick #2 and then an all-black one(not pictured) that looks just like Chick #1. It's hard to see, but all of them have feathered feet. Chick #2 birds are smaller than the Chick #1 birds, and a little more mischievous ;)

    #1s looks like they may be silkies, dark skin & topknots, do they have 5 toes?
    #2s looks like cochins, single combs, 4 toes?
