    Hey all you BYC'rs out there with too much time on your hands..I rescued some banties the other day and have no idea what kind they are. I think a few are cochins, a few are EE's and a couple are just very small chickens. If you know what they are, give a shout!
    [​IMG] little buff hen, very small

    [​IMG] my favorite hen, millie for millie fluer

    [​IMG] Someone said she is a brahma but she has clean legs..so.

    [​IMG]little red roo. Looks the most like a cochin

    [​IMG] a fluffy grey hen with feathery feets, she has a sister that looks like her

    [​IMG] an EE hen? there are two like her

    Then there is a brahma roo I think is a cochin, and a sebright roo that is a really cute little guy who is very tame and handleable. I can pick him up anytime [​IMG]

    Thanks for all your input, I appriciate it!

    The second one is a Mille Fleur D'Uccle, the rest are Cochins except the last one and the very laced silvery gray one. That one looks like a mixed breed to me, but not sure. Last one is an EE.

    I think you have a nice mix of mixed. The second one does appear to be a MFD. The red roo does look like he may be at least part red cochin, but I really think you have some barnyard crosses. They are all lovely ladies and gents just the same. I do have a thing for splashes and blues, so I especially think the two splash ladies are quite pretty. They appear to be healthy too, which is most important, right?

    From the top:
    Buff cochin - Might be a light red
    Mille Fleur d'Uccle
    No Idea, but I love her coloring
    red Cochin
    Splash Cochin
    Splash something. Looks like she may have a beard. Splash Ameraucana maybe

    Not sure but the last one maybe a D'Anver. I think they are bearded bantams with clean legs. [​IMG]
    Other than that I agree with Matt.

    I think they are hatchery quality Cochins, not necessarily mixes. I have a lavender Cochin from Ideal who would look very much the same except for her color.

    What some absolutely beautiful bannies. I used to have some, but between predators and bad luck, I have either lost or given all mine away. I just get too attached, and they are just too vulnerable.[​IMG]:hit:hit Sob.

    From what were they rescued? What was to be their plight?
