Breed Question

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by roostersandhens, Mar 3, 2014.

  1. Hello. I had a Cochin X Barred Rock rooster, who sadly passed away in January :( He was the best boy. Anyways, I always though "How can he be a Cochin X Barred Rock?" because he was SO small!! He was abut 4 pounds. His children are the same breed but with Australorp in them. Anyways, his sons are pretty big. But do you think he could have had Bantam Cochin in him rather than LF?

    Most standard breeds come in a bantam size. Both rocks and cochin come in a bantam size. He could have been a bantam and standard cross.
     
  3. Yeah, I was thinking that is a possibility. Thanks for the quick reply. He was very small, but very very mighty. Once he fought a hawk, and won!
