Cochin?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I bought my first 2 pullets almost 6 weeks ago and the feed store got it all wrong. I asked for a Buff Orpington and a Cuckoo Maran. The Maran turned out to be a rooster and it's been obvious that I did not end up with an orpington. My next guess is a Cochin. Thoughts?

Which one?  Are you talking about the white one in the front or that little buff one in the corner?

That is indeed a White Cochin - so far, it appears to be a young pullet.

If you are talking about the white one, it looks like a cochin.  If you are talking about the little buff one it looks like a buff Brahma from what I can see.

Yes, the white one. Sorry. We added the Buff Brahma a week after we got the white and black one.

It's not a Brahma - Brahmas show pea comb and have less feathering on the legs than Cochins do. And I don't think I've ever seen a White Brahma before; Light, sure, but never White. They may exist but if they do they are not common.

(I'm assuming you're referring to the White bird - in the case of the Buff bird, yes, that's a Brahma, as @HansenMamaOf2 stated.)
