    Does anyone have pictures of offspring of a cochin roo crossed with a cochin hen/s? I am thinking off adding one of my blue cochin roosters in with the buff orpington hens and am curious as to what the offspring might look like.

    They'd look like orps with bad leg feathering- more brahma than cochin. I did it with banties- but my pics are stuck in my destroyed laptop

    For some reason the males were all heavily booted, and the hens not so much.

    I'd be a good way to introduce some new colors into Orps [​IMG]
