    I have four Cochins that were sold as bantams. Now that I am comparing them to my barred rocks that are the same age (approx 1 week), I'm almost thinking (more afraid) they're standards. We have two grown bantam Cochins and they are wonderful chickens, so this was our attempt to get more. What do you think bantams or no? Or will I not know for sure until they're older? I tried to get a picture of them standing normally side by side for comparison, but with chicks that's nearly impossible.

    At a week old, there won't be that much difference, but as another week or two goes by, the BR should take off and leave the Cochin behind if its a Bantam.

    gamebirds only, lol That's the 15th time tonight I've seen you post this smilie. [​IMG]
