    I'm fairly new to Cochins, but I have two std. cochins that I got from one breeder and 3 from different ones.

    I have one roo and one hen whose tail rounds out nicely and are very poofy.

    The rest of them have very pointy tails.

    The pointy tail ones also seem to be not built as tall as my other two either.

    Is this a showing issue? I'll try and get pics of them this weekend.

    I'd say the poofier the better.
