    I'm pretty new to chickens and have some questions about some of them. First of all, what breed are these? They have foot feathering, but the hen has more than the roo. The hen lays green eggs.

    The next several pictures are chicks that I bought at a feed store. I was told that they are bantam cochins and silkies. They are about 3 months old now, but I'm not sure about some things. If anyone can confirm/correct/inform me on breed, color, and gender, I would be very grateful. I know a little, and another BYC member told me a little more, so I'll list their names, the info I have and then the pic.

    Ok, this last one is 3 new chicks that we got from a friend. This flock consists of many different breeds that are dumped at his workplace and left to roam the property together, so they're most likely a mixed breed, but if you can identify gender and color, that's good enough for me. I do think they are bantams.

    Thanks for looking at my chicken pics. Any help or comments are welcome and appreciated.

    The first roo looks like a black tailed white Japanese bantam. Also, the black and yellow chick at the bottom looks like a Japanese batam, too.

    i agree 4 is not a cochin, it is likely a bantam light brahma

    Thanks for the confirmation, everyone. Does anyone have a guess on the gender of the 2 silkies or the 3 chicks on the bottom (I was told that the chicks were female)? I'm thinking the silkies are girls, too, but the black one seems so much smaller than the other, and is only 1 week younger. Opinions?
