    I just got this hen and I'm kind of stumped on her color. Any guesses? She is an adult standard hen and I know nothing about her background. She is not in good feather condition right now from breeding. The pictures do show her true color. What do you think? Also does her quality look good enough to keep? My goal is to have a few standard cochins that are nice enough to show. Critique her..it won't hurt my feelings.[​IMG]

    your hen is very beautiful !!! i would LOVE to have her in my flock for sure. i dont know coloring correctness to be a critic . her face does look more like a Buff Orpington , but i am looking on my cell phone screen..not reg computer screen. i have several of the BO x with cochins..look similar in appearence.

    Could be a cast off from a Buff Columbain, or perhaps someone was working on Wheaten and got some black in the hackles? At any rate, she's not a specific color, but a cutie none the less.
