    Are all cochin bantams or are there standard cochins as well?

    Feathered legs/feet are cochins, right?

    There are standard and bantam cochins. They are one breed that has feathers on their legs, like pants! They look like cowboys to me!

    Iwantchickens,
    Yes there is Standard and Bantams. I have standard, you can see pictures on my website. They have feathers all over, up and down their legs and feet.

    Here is one of my little bantam cochins that I named Fred. He is only 3 weeks old and already has such pretty feathered feet. I am also pretty sure he's a rooster because he already has wattles and a little red comb on his head, unlike his brooder mates of the same age. I like my little cochin chicks so far. I can't wait until they get all their adult feathers in!
