    I am looking to start a flock of breeding/show quality Standard Cochins and I am considering buying this pair but I figured that I would ask you BYC'ers for input first. Are they pet, breeding, or show quality?

    WAY too early to tell, but going based off of the ad, I would say pet quality.

    Even though they are really young, their leg color shouldn't be slate. If you're looking for breeder/show quality I am doubtful that these will fit the bill. The Splash chick should have yellow legs, and while most Blacks carry Black/dusky yellow legs and feet, and subsequently Blues trend toward that as well, the Blue in the photo should at least show some tendency toward yellow, not complete slate. I wouldn't be surprised if both have white bottoms on their feet.
