    I think if you let her grow a little more you can show her. [​IMG]

    Thank you , I have a question on leg color. I have seen different varieties of cochins with different leg colors, what would be the correct leg color for a black Cochin?

    Quote:Cochins should have yellow legs. However, many black and blue cochins have dark legs. From what I've read, as long as the soles of their feet are yellow, the legs are still considered yellow.

    Thank you, her shanks are slate but her soles are yellow. Would that be ok, or is she just not a good example?
