    The first chick looks like a Dark Brahma, but it could also be the coloring for a Silver Laced Bantam Cochin.

    Look at the comb to tell if you've got Cochins or Brahma (or something else).

    A Brahma will have a pea comb, Cochin a single comb.

    I can't really tell combs from the photos....and sometimes it is hard at this age to see the difference between a pea comb and single...the difference between tiny pearl beads (pea) and tiny little hills or mountains (single).

    Cutie pies at any rate. Enjoy your new little babes.

    Please post new photos in 2-3 weeks - so we can check combs- they are real dolls but.... would you still want them if they turn out to be cockerels?
