    Hey guys this is gonna be extremely difficult without a picture but your best guess will greatly be appreciated. Yesterday i went to get some cochin chicks and when i got there i saw something i had never seen before. It was a white bird that looked exactly like a bantam cochin but it had a spike rose comb. It had huge wattles but the tale wasent all to rounded. He was definatly a bantam because he was an older guy but wasn't very tall. But just something about him is telling me cochin and not brahma and i was wondering if just some kinda cross bredding was the reason for the comb type. I got a chick that is the same feather legged short and stalky and has a spiked rose comb i will post a pic when i can of him but any guess will be appreaciated. I would have bought him but the guy said he was an old boy and was pretty rough with the girls. So guess away:thumbsup
