Bantam Cochin Quality?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Pet nearing breeder quality. Needs to have a fuller rounded tail. Color is a little dark for a blue, and looks like some red leakage in his feathers. Overall he is a very nice bird. He could even be shown on the local level and most likely do well. If you are using him for breeding blues. I would find some slightly light blue hens and see if the offspring lightens up.
I'll keep an ear open for some blues. That millie is just outstanding bird! I raised millies for several years and just recently sold out. And I sold several birds that went on to place in shows. And that boy is just as nice and the boys I used for breeding. The trick with millie though is they don't yet breed true. You'll have to raise several chicks to get good millies. For instance I had one pair that threw a lot of calicos, and one pair the threw a lot of buff mottles. Millies are one of the hardest colors to work with, but also the most beautiful in my opinion.
