Since there has been an interest expressed in a thread dedicated to the discussion of showing cochins and the breeding and genetics involved in improving our breed, it is our hope that this thread might be a forum to serve this purpose. Pictures are welcome, but mostly to exemplify what you're breeding. We would appreciate it if you would limit your discussion to genetics, color, type, disposition, breeding and showing at APA and or ABA sanctioned shows. That is not to say that we want this to be a totally dry and lifeless forum, but just our desire to avoid slipping into pet stories which is all too easy to do with these wonderful birds. If anyone that is interested in this topic has a better way of stating this or something to add, take away, or otherwise, PLEASE feel free to do so.
