    So after doing some research I discovered that my thought to be Bantom Cochins are mixed with another breed. Most of the cochin roosters ive seen are way more fluffier than mine.

    I had 4 "cochin roosters" and gave away two. But here are some images of them.

    Id love to hear your thoughts on what you think the exact breed is.

    Can't really say exactly they're mixed with, but they almost look gamey. Definitely something much longer and leaner than a cochin.

    Gamey? lol what does that mean?

    The neighbor who gave them to me (when they werent even 24 hours old) said they were cochins. I saw the mom she was a large fluffy black cochin. I have 1 black cochin hen out of the 5 and shes 3 months old, still small and not as fluffy.

    Looks like it could be a Cochin/Old English game mix. Though of course, I could be wrong. [​IMG] His erect, fanned tail resembles an Old English game bantam.

    Thank you everyone! When i heard the term "game" I chuckled and said to myself "does that mean they play a lot of games"
