    This one has feathers on its legs.

    I got these two chicks from a lady down the road from me to give my hatched chick a playmate...or two. Darn chicken math. Lol. Any idea on the breeds? My daughter picked them out.

    Are they pure breeds or crosses?

    The top one is most likely a Cochin, I think I see a small single comb coming in.

    The other one is most likely an Easter Egger, but it does have similar markings to a Welsummer, but the plumage doesn't match.

    Thanks! I'm pretty sure they are crosses.

    You're welcome! They probably are crosses, but I'd say the second one definitely has the blue egg gene.
