    Could someone tell me (or tell me where to find) what the ideal Cochin breed standards are? I have 6 chicks that I've aquired. Just want to know what to look for, or if there's something to look out for!

    Also, are the terms giant cochin and standard cochin interchangable?

    Giants are ....really big [​IMG] They are larger than a standard.

    As for the breed standard, I would look here http://cochinsinternational.cochinsrule.com/ and click on which you are concerned about under "breed characteristics" A bantam is different than a standard. A roo's standards are different than a hen.

    Good Luck
