    Hi everyone! I'm still new to BYC, so I'm hoping I posted this in the right place! [​IMG]

    I got my first chicks a few weeks ago. I also have three silkies which I am in LOVE with! I have no idea what breed one of the chicks is! He has feathery feet. Some have told me he looks like a cochin. What do you guys think? Thanks SOOOO much in advance!!!!!! [​IMG] And btw- I LOVE this site!! I met a new friend in the area from here too! [​IMG]

    He is quite the daredevil too! They are currently in a container in the garage and he jumped out today and was running around, screaming [​IMG]

    blue cochin (probably frizzle - need more feather length to tell for sure). I have 6 in the brooder right now.

    I don't think he's cochin at all...feathers on the outside of his legs only. I believe he's a brahma. [​IMG]

    I just researched these guys. He/she does look like a buff brahma. Can you easily sex these guys? I'm hoping for a hen.
