    Does anyone on this site have the Bantam Cochin breed roosters or hens? I just acquired 2 Bantam Cochin roosters yesterday. If I'm right with the breed, they are beautiful. One crows, but the other one, I'm not so sure he is a rooster?? His/Her comb is not as large as the other rooster, but has those saddle feathers. Would someone post me a picture of their bantam rooster and hen so I can determine if this one is a he/she?

    If I knew how, I would post pictures of them. I'm computer illiterate!!

    He is a beauty! Looks like a Bantam White Leghorn.

    I was just told that I have Partridge Bantam Rooster/hen?

    Partridge Cochin Bantam Rooster - Don't tell him he is a Bantam, because he runs with the standard hens
