    I posted a picture awhile back when this gal was still only a couple weeks old. I got opinions from Cochin to black langshan. Well...I'm thinking no at this point. Maybe a white langshan? Still quite a bit of black in there. Anyways, I am open to hearing people's suggestions! She was a freebie mystery chick from McMurray with our most recent order and is about 8 weeks old now and I just can't for the life of me pin down what she is (I call her the dodo). Thanks all you chicken lovers

    She looks like a splash Cochin to me, though I'm not 100% sure.

    Oh definitely a good thought! Just looked that one up and could be a strong contender.
    I am not strong in the fancy chicken department!

    Y'all think it's a cockerel? I haven't had a male like this before. I have buff orpington males and well before this age it was VERY distinct that they were males. So what gives this fella away?

    And one more question...could it be another variation of Cochin? I was just looking at McMurray and I don't even see Splash Cochin on their site...just wanted to look at some info on the bird since we raise mostly dual purpose birds and some meat. Thanks y'all!

    If he came from McMurray he is likely one of their white cochins - the coloring on him is likely a result of being hatchery stock.
