    I'm wondering what breeds are these little ones as some of them are feather footed.

    I am a noobie at chickens still, and I really don't know for sure... There are only so many feather footed bantams it can be. You can look on the breeds list on this site. That helps me sometimes.

    I am guessing your bottom one is a Mille Fleur D'Uccle based on the colors

    With my chickies!
    I's say the light feather-footed might be a cochin(?)

    The white one looks like it has a bit of a crest and beard/muffs. I can't tell for sure but I think it has feathered legs and would guess it has an extra toe. If that is the case, then that one looks to be a Sultan.

    The chick in the second pics might be an OEG. I think the rest of the feather legged chicks are D'Uccles. The first is probably a porcelain but possibly a self blue, the second to last is probably a golden neck, and last is a mille fleur.

    I will get pics of them standing on their own. For the Mille Fleur I discovered him/her hiding among a bunch of baby turkeys at my local feed store and I quickly bought the chick. For the others they too were hiding among a bunch of Leghorn chicks and they are bantams due to the size of the standard leghorn chicks.

    Yep, I'm sticking with my original guesses. D'Uccles on the feather legged except the one looks to be a Sultan and the clean legged I would still go with OEG.
