    I'm wanting to get some opions on my 12 week old barred cochin roo. I think he is showable but wanted to see what you all think.

    Granted he is still young and has a lot of filling out to do yet.

    I think you're going to have a REALLY nice boy in a few months!! [​IMG]
    Is he standard or bantam? It's still way too early to tell for sure either way, though. But those sure are some nice feet! [​IMG]

    It's hard to say without seeing his daddy but a bantam cochin should have the form of a basketball. Your guy is standing a bit high and needs much more feathering. Hopefully, he'll get that. You should not be able to see feet or see in between the legs. He needs to be much rounder. Do you have pics of the parents. That will really let us know.

    Are you sure he's a bantam?? [​IMG] Pretty large. Beautiful though. Would like to see him in a few months.

    Yeah he's a banty I blew up the pics to get more detail. I'm hoping he will feather out better as he gets older. So far he's the best I have hatched. But now I have some pointers to look for improvement. Thanks.
