I get Poultry Press - The cochins that win , have almost no back, by that I mean the cushion almost runs into the hackles.
The Blue colored birds should be slate blue and laced with black feathers on most of their body. In the picture your birds feathered appear muddied, by that I mean , their is black in the middle area where it should only be slate blue, of course that could just be the picture.
PS. I did check the items above in the American Standard of Perfection 1998 - which is always at my desk.
