    I bought some Buff Cochins at TSC today, but I don't think they are really Buff Cochins as they have no feet feathers. Any guesses? Oh, and any guesses on the mystery spotted chick would be welcome. The person who helped me very nice, but had no idea what he was doing [​IMG]

    I think it is a buff orphington and the mystery chick may be a Easter Egger.

    Good Luck,

    Thanks! I should add the mystery chick is smaller than any of the others by far.

    I have 5 easter eggers that looked just like that 8 weeks ago. We called them our little chipmunks. They look like this now.

    The yellow chicks look as though they will be white instead of buff, but maybe that is my eyes playing tricks on me. I would be interested in seeing the "spotted" one better. Something tells me that it isn't an EE. It has yellow legs and from what I can see no muffs. Post another pic if you can, it will sure help in the ID of the spotted chick.

    I think the heat lamp was washing out some color. The 2 darkest are red sexlinks. The wall behind them is a "milk" white. Does this help? That one is very feisty.
