    I am trying to find good quality Cochins to start my breeding program with and I was wondering what kind of quality these are?

    ok, I'll take a stab.
    tough to tell a whole lot from photos usually.

    The Large Cochins (at least the Blues) look like they might be crossed with Orps. Their faces show a tendency toward mulberry which certainly isn't a Cochin characteristic. The male is way too short in the back, and doens't have enough cushion. Can't tell much from the Black female from the photo.

    The Bantam Columbians: Female looks to be very smutty in the cushion. Male does not have well defined hackle and saddle markings. I'd classify them as pet quality.

    The Columbian Frizzle is too young to tell anything about, and I don't know what variety the other frizzle is supposed to be.
