    Can you tell me if he is a Cochin or Brahma? The lady we got him off of said he was a Cochin, but a family friend said he thought he was a Brahma. Thanks!

    NOT a Brahma. Those have pea combs. Here is a Brahma. Note her comb. He doesn't really look pure Cochin, either, more like a mix, at least to me.

    He could be a pure Cochin, but he's at least a mix of colors. Thats not a color I've ever seen on them. He sure is handsome!

    Yes, he could be just a hatchery quality Cochin rather than a mix. Is he a sweet boy? If so, that's the best kind of all, no matter breed or color.
