    So I was wondering if anyone has the chocolate bantam cochins yet? Either solid, mottled, or splashed. I have a couple of English chocolate bantam orphingtons (3 hens 1 roo) that I want to cross onto my cochins to try and get chocolate cochins.

    What would be the best cross colors to get them if this cross works? I have most colors of cochin bantams too! :)

    Thanks!

    Here are my two new acquisitions...forgive the picture quality. Obviously some room for improvement. These are young birds, not to POL yet for the pullet, and the cockerel is about the same age. This will be an ongoing project, and I hope to add several nice black pullets to make improvements :)
