Here are a few pictures of our Barred Cochins. I adore their heavily feathered feet and full fluffy butts! We have fallen in love with these chickens and as soon as we test the fertility of the eggs on a few hatches we will be offering hatching eggs for sale. What do you think?

I am not an expert on cochins but the cushions on them are a bit lacking and they look cuckoo to me instead of barred but I am by no means an expert on that either.

How old are they? I had 2 a couple of years ago, Hilda and Heidi, I loved them dearly but they seemed to be a little darker and more even barring then yours. I also think that they might be Cuckoo rather than barred, but they are very pretty all the same.

Quote:x2. Their conformation isn't quite right, and their barring needs quite a bit of work, but they are pretty none the less. Just not show quality


And ditto on the butt-fluff trimming. I had to do it to get any fertile eggs out of my blue girls when I had them.
