    These are a week old, sexed female from mypetchicken surplus bantams. I know several are silkies, but wondering for any insights on these? Thanks!![​IMG]

    Pic 2= polish
    Pic 3-5= mottled Cochin
    Pic 6-7= Welsummer
    I'm pretty sure, you won't know for sure for a few weeks though.

    I'm pretty sure picture 2 is a white crested black polish bantam, not a mottled one.

    MYP chicks sells only mottled Cochin bantams, and sometimes silkies. They never have sold mottled polish ;). [​IMG]
