    I was wondering if Cochins can have black feet. And if anyone has pics of their couple week old cochins please post them. I was picking up cochins and silkies. Well we have two roosters but one of them we cant tell if it is a cochin or a silkie. He only has four toes. Please post any info you know.

    Cochins are supposed to have yellow legs and feet.


    Maybe they were trying to cross a silkie with a frizzled cochin to get a sizzle and that could be why it has black feet. Just guessing here.
