I purchased these two "light brahmas" on 3/1 when they were 3 days old. I took these pictures yesterday morning, so these babies are about 10 days old. I know they're not light brahmas. They do have feathered feet, though. Some kind of cochin? Any ideas? Not silkies as they don't have 5 toes. (yes, I know the one baby has icky poo bottom.. I cleaned it right after taking this picture.) The other babies in this picture are the real light brahmas & white orpingtons.

It's a bit too early to tell what they are, after they feather out more it should be possible to id them. Here's a link to the feather site page for brahman chicks.
None of these look like yours.
This is a good web site to learn about poultry of all kinds.
