    I don't have the breeding stock yet, but hopefully I'll start a chocolate bantam Cochin project next year. I did get permission from the other half, so there's half the battle. [​IMG]

    I know Msbear just got a chocolate bantam Orp cockerel to work on chocolate Mille Fleur bantam Cochins.

    Dun. Very few choc birds in the US. Chocolate is a variety name that can be created with either dun or choc.

    I'd have 2 projects going if I could find the right bird.

    We have a program to breed both chocolate and chocolate partridge bantam Wyandottes. Here's a pic I took last weekend of a pure chocolate rooster:

    I have chocolate (recessive, sex linked chocolate) Serama's. Once I have enough stock to work with, I plan to work on chocolate Araucana's in bantam and later large fowl
