    My husband got a few bantams from a feed store this morning and we aren't sure what they are. Any ideas?

    The other one that looks like this has faint dark smudges on its back. Porcelains?

    This chipmunk one might be old English?

    Then there are five that have the same style but differing colors. Some are more black and yellow and some are more black and silver. All are feather footed.

    Definitely not silkies. Probably Cochins.

    I'm not sure about the first one.The second looks like an Old English Game Bantam. The next looks like Dark Brahma Bantsm or Silver Pencilled Cochin Bantam. The next looks like a Light Brahma Bantam. What kind of combs do the feather legged chicks have? You could post more pictures once they feather out to be sure on breeds and varieties. :)

    Thank you for all the helpful responses!

    Now that they are a little older, I have a better idea about some of these chicks, but some are still confounding me! The first ones turned out to be white/white frizzle Cochins.

    Three of them are similar pattern but different in color

    All are single combs. Some kind of Cochin? The one has almost a blue barred look to the wings but I have no clue.

    This one I'm thinking silver laced Cochin.

    Then I got some new chicks thinking they would go with this group, but they didn't match when we got them home.

    All single combs and no beards on any of these. We are thinking the one may also be a silver laced but no clue on the other two? Could be two different color tones of Mille fleurs? Any input would be appreciated!
