    This is his Brother(i assume), He is JET BLACk and just a sweetheart! he is gorgeous too [​IMG] I plan to keep him along with my Splash Cochin Roo for my Cochin girls. They're all bantams. What do you think of his Quality?

    I would say sell the first i think he has Vulture hocks A DQ
    i must do more research about the other but for sure he is better
    ETA: is the roo on the bottom of the third pic the black one?

    I bought them at the local auction, everyone has been dumping off their fair birds, mainly roosters but I am a sucker for a Cochin so I bought them both for $4. There was a lot of info on the box and i believe it said they were hatched June 6th, so they're still pretty young.

    I am just not sure if he will become fuller as he matures or if he will keep the droopy tail look.
    ETA: Yes, the roo in the bottom of the 3rd pic is the Black one. I will try to get better pics today, just didn't have the GOOD camera when i went to take pics [​IMG]

    All of my girls are Blue & Black so I don't want to breed a rooster with red on him.. if the other is his brother he probably carries the color but id rather have a solid roo than one with red.
