    I have a chick that was sold to me as a mottled banty cochin, but it has really long legs and a slimmer body than the other chicks. If someone could tell me if in fact it is a cochin or something else that would be great, I would also like some oppinions on wether its a pullet or a cockeral?

    My next problem is that I have pictures of him/her on my computer but have no idea how to post them, so could someone fill me in on how to do that?

    Thanks

    It very well could be a Cochin, with the feathered legs.

    its just got such a skinny body and long legs compared to the others, which is why I question it. its a pretty bird none the less.
