    We have 3 big girls that came from a friend. We think 2 of them are part Cochin. They have feathers on their feet and lay light brown eggs. We have no idea what else they could be. The other bird had green legs. She hasn't started laying yet but we were thinking some sort of EE she doesn't have a muff and she does have a tail. See what y'all think.

    I found one that I think looks like Midnight on Featherside, here's the link.
    It is Laura Adams-Durgin's Brown-Red Cochin bantam pullet, Best of Variety at the '97 Cochins

    they sure are pretty. My old mixes turned out to be decent layers.
