What breed is this little one?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi, any guesses on this breed?  The eggs we got were all supposed to be LF Orpingtons, but I'm thinking this is a bantam of some sort.  This one was hatched on 2/9 of this year.  Pay no attention to my BO cockerel who was trying to photo bomb.  Thanks!

I'm thinking Bantam Cochin cockerel of some variety or another.

That's what I was leaning towards.  He's a cute little guy, but we don't do bantams.  Want to list him for sale, but I'd like to be able to tell people what he is.

x2  Maybe a Lemon Blue Cochin?

Cochin bantam for sure. Closest to a blue red pattern. Lemon blue would be nearly solid light blue with a little yellow in the hackle feathers.
