    They were in an assortment of Banties. I know they are full blood not crosses. I just dont know what they are. I hope they are prettier when they grow up!! They are 2 months old. [​IMG]

    I thought maybe they were but my other cochins are shorter and rounder. They really dont look like them. These are long legged.

    Can't help on the breed, but UNLIKE turkens/NNs which I just can't get warmed up to, your chicks truly are so ugly they are cute. [​IMG]

    They actually look like they will be beautiful birds one day - the ugly duckling into a swan!

    I hope they turn out cute!! There are only 2 that look like them. They are tall long legged. They arent silkies or cochins. Who knows!!!!

    OMG! I have some of those SAME ugly chicks that I dont know what they are either. Mine are also bantam... Identical!! Except the backs of mine never feathered out right yet, so mine are even uglier lol. I assumed they were cochin crosses but they ARE longer legged than my pure cochins. Guess we can wait together to find out what they are lol. Mine are about a month old.

    That first picture made me laugh. It looks like a mini-ostrich with fuzzy legs. Very cute! [​IMG]

    Are you certain they are banties?....
