    Has anyone ever tried to breed to have a clean legged cochin? If so I would love to have some.

    No, if its clean legged it is NOT a cochin. Wyandottes are close if you want somethig clean legged.

    I plan on breeding my Cochins and EE's together so I could get some that look like Cochins but have clean legs.

    Honestly, if you're wanting something similar to a Cochin without feathered-legs, I would look at BamaChicken's Orpingtons. She has some beautiful birds.

    lildinkem has some odd colored Orpingtons and Justuschickens has some beautiful birds as well.

    I'm sure there are several others but these are the ones that popped into my head at first thought.
