    We bought these little cuties in the spring along with some other chicks but we can't figure out what we have here. The black one has feather feet like a silkie, and the black/tan was supposed to be a Lakenvelder, but according to a book they are supposed to be black and white.

    Theye are both tiny and precious.

    The first one is a cochin (I [​IMG] that breed), and the second one is a gold lakenvelder. They come in silver (which would be the black and white), or gold. [​IMG]

    Ah hah!

    The Cochin is one of my favorite around here. We have 34 chicks and chickens and she's just so darn cute.

    Thanks
