    [​IMG]I'd have to say the Cochin and Frizzle Bantams sell well no matter what color they are. I have Cochins in Lavender, Splash, Blue Red, Blue Buff, Buff, Blue, Red, Blue Red Splash, Black Mottled, Blue Mottled, Lavender Mottled, Lavender Cuckoo, Cuckoo, Blue Cuckoo, along with a few others that i'm working with. I have Frizzles in Buff, Blue Buff, Blue Mottled, Blue Red, Lemon Blue Mottled, and also a few other colors of them as well that i'm working with.[​IMG]

    I agree with MapleGrove! Cochins are popular no matter the color! I raise Mottled Cochins. This is one of my Frizzled roos, "Captian Jack".

    Very beautiful birds [​IMG] I have a hard time finding many people that sell Cochins here in Louisiana. Are they a popular breed in your state?

    I find that when I do have some to sell, they do sell very well. Especially the Frizzles and Naked Neck Frizzles. I think they are just awesome pets and mine lay very well. Mine have been outlaying my bf's father's RIR and BR as well as his brother's Buff Orpingtons lol [​IMG]

    As with any breed, price is dependent on the quality of birds your offering. A bird that has been bred by standard will/should cost more than something you find in an average backyard flock. A lot of people dont care about quality as long as they have a pretty bird, but some people do.
