    I recently ordered a mixed batch of feather-legged bantam chicks that arrived on Halloween. They are now around three/four weeks old, but I don't have a good idea of what they are. I ordered them sexed, so I know they are girls, but could someone help me understand what they might be?
    Here are pictures of my chicks. (I think the black one is a cochin, but I don't know which kind.)

    Really no way to tell, at this age. Could be a lot of Inge, although you probably have some Cochins. Were did you order from! That might help narrow it down.

    I ordered them from MyPetChicken.com from their "feather-legged bantam assortment" option, this will give you any chickens they have in stock that are, of course, feather-legged bantams. They have both Brahmas and Milee Fleur Bantams, and frizzled cochins and mottled cochins.
    Also, I've never heard of Inge. What is it?

    I have buff Brahmas from MPC and agree, photo 6 for sure. Wondering if pic 2 could be a splash marans. Mine is almost impossible to tell from my blue cochins. Except she's actually a good bit bigger. Fully booted like a cochin.

    There is no possibility for Marans, unfortunately, they don't come in the assortment. they look neat though.

    Black Cochins and d’Uccles, mostly milles. That first one might be a Brahma but’s it’s a little early to be sure. You should be more certain over the next few weeks though!

    too young. Brahmas are especially slow developing
