Are there any other breeds it could be also? I know its to young to be able to tell for sure.
I have 6 chickens 2 Rhode island whites, 2 white leghorns and 2 that were in with the white leghorns that I don't know for sure could they be another breed other than red cochins and do some white leghorns have different color feathers as baby's?
I'm not entirely sure what it is you are asking.
Are you asking if there other breeds the feather footed thing could be? It clearly has a single comb, feathered shanks, and no beard. That pretty much leaves Cochin as the most likely option. The only other beardless, single combed, feather shanked breeds that come to mind are Langshan and Marans--the color is wrong for any Marans or Langshan you'll find in a "bin" with other breeds.
White Leghorns start yellow downed and have white feathers. If you have birds with other colors in with the white, they might be California Whites or another production hybrid.
Thank you that's what I was asking but also could leghorns have feathered feet as a chick or could it be a hybrid
The chick looks like a Red Cochin to me, too. Leghorns can not have feathered feet; if they did, they would not fit their breed characteristics and therefore wouldn't be leghorns.
