    I got 8 day old chicks 5 weeks ago. The are all mixed breed, 4 of them mostly black, and 2 roosters (I think). I used a feather sexing method when I bought the chicks, and I'm pretty sure it worked because I thought I would have 6 female 2 male.
    Anyways... I got this beauty! No clue what breed she is. Some of the other birds also have feathers on their legs and feet, but not as many as this one. And she is the only one this colour. If anyone has any ideas I am curious to what you think!!

    This is one of the roosters... I'm sure He's a He.
    Any idea what breed this one is?

    And this is another female, I think....

    And another female... I think

    Looks like you got some mutts(mixed breeds). Top looks Cochin, perhaps blue. Rooster looks like a cuckoo Marans. THe last two are definitely mixed.

    You stated in your post they're mixed breed, so you've kind of answered your own question! The first bird looks to have a lot of cochin in it, the second one maybe cochin and barred rock, third one is a pullet with barring a generation or so back, third one is mixed breed pullet.

    Looking again, that first bird may be something like d'uccle, those are some impressive feathers on the feet. Cochins don't seem to have that much. Is she large size or bantam?

    My little mixed breed barred rock rooster looks almost exactly like yours and they are almost the same age.[​IMG]
