    Ok these are either cochins or d'uccle can you guys help me figure this out?

    my guess on this one is mollted cochin, its wings are comeing in white, but its not a white cochin. these are bantams.

    After the mottles (which could be a duccle) you have a mille fleur d'uccle, a dark prahma (possibly partridge cochin, but looks more brahma-ish). Last photo looks like a buff brahma.

    The last one looks like it has a single comb though.

    No idea on first chick. I couldn't see the comb on the last photo--too much a profile. I suppose it could be a buff columbian d'uccle

    Here is what i think:

    #1- No clue exactly but I am thinking mixed breed
    #2 - mottled cochin, mottled chicks usually start off looking like penguins (even the first set of feathers) before they acctually turn mottled
    #3 - either silver laced cochin or light brahma(what kind of comb does it have?)
    #4 - partridge cochin, too brown to be a brahma I think, also the foot feathering is too heavy for brahma(what kind of comb does it have?)
    #5 - since it looks bearded I would say Salmon faverolle, how many toes does it have?
    #6 - Mille Fleur D'Uccle(again those get their mottleing in their second set of feathers, not the first) or buff Brahma(again, what kind of comb does it have?)

    I know, I ask more questions then I answer....

    1. RIR cross or welsummer?
    2. it's mottled, looks like it may be bearded, if so, its a d'uccle, if not, it's a cochin
    3. looks like a dark brahma, does it have a pea comb?
    4. partridge cochin
    5. mille fleur d'uccle if 4 toes, salmon faverolle if 5
    6. buff brahma if it has a pea comb

    #3 isn't a Silver Laced Cochin, they are black with yellow on the chest.
