    I am trying to locate any information on how I can get a Chocolate Standard Cochin. I'm not really finding the answer to what do I breed with my Cochins to get the chocolate gene introduced into my cochin? I see that there are chocolate bantam cochins but not the LF. Anyone with info as to where I can look to find this info would be much appreciated!

    Okay I would say say get a couple of chocolate Orphington Roo's and chocolate hens, then use black Cochins. And create your own chocolate cochins!!

    If you breed a chocolate to chocolate you all chocolate babies!!

    Okay so let's say you breed a chocolate Orphington Roo to a black Cochin hen you will get (black males with the chocolate gene)!! (You will get all chocolate females)!!! Not sure about leg feathering but Iam sure you could hatch some with leg feathers only keep the chicks that are born with leg feathers!!!

    In order for a male to be chocolate they need (2) copy's of the gene. Males that only have (1) copy of chocolate will be black but split to chocolate because they have the gene in them that is hidden..

    Females only need (1) copy to be chocolate!!

    Hope this makes sense!!! Let me know if you want more info!!!
