    This is Rocky. He was mean, I actually had nightmares about him believe it or not, but then we found him a new home and they said he was the sweetest, nicest rooster ever and that all the children adored him.
    I just got some standard cochins (I couldn't get bantams because I would have needed 15, so when I got my order of standards I got a couple cochins with it), and I'm hoping they are as friendly as people say they are and are wonderful broodies. [​IMG]

    Here are mine.

    Do the barred Cochin bantams not fill out and get a "puffy" as some of the other colors? I have seen red and black that are just a puff of feathers and almost round in shape.

    Adorable chickens!
    My cochins are all the wrong shape also, but this is because they are hatchery quality and not show quality. Show quality cochins are fluffier then the hatchery quality.
