    Bought a Bantam chick. It is brown and black ( I think my pics are pretty good). Feathers on the feet. The wing feathers are growing out brown and then black in the center from all that we can see on growth. Anyone know what we have?
    First I thought a Seabright but then we saw the feathers on the feet so now I am thinking something else.

    I have no idea what Hatchery it came from but we bought it from Northern 40, formerly Big R.


    Thanks for your input, my kids are so excited to know what itis so we can google pictures. lol

    Just a small town in FL
    Personally, I'd say they're some sort of cochin, possibly a red-brown cochin? Either way, they're cute!
