    Hi everyone, the orchleins had banties, but didn't know what kind- i need to avoid them! Anyway, these two little ones have feathered feet- any idea what kind they are?? One has greyish feathers, one yellow

    Ok, doing a bit of research- how do they handle cold? also, i have week old chicks- Orpingtons, Australorp, RI Red- currently they are separate- is it safe to put them together or will the bigger ones hurt them??

    At least 1 looks like a porcelian d'uccle. I don't think I'd put them in with the standards.

    Thanks - they are in a seperate brooder- the sales person thought they may be cochins... but emphasised they were straight run- so i'll be surprised..[​IMG]

    The first one definitely looks like a d'uccles, the second is probably a buff brahma. I don't see the 'wispy' foot feathers on the second one.
