I believe she’s about 3-4 months old, but I’m not sure. I’m worried cause my bantam cochin has a curved tail, but hers looks normal.

    Probably just hatchery quality buff Cochin. She could be a mix, too, I guess. She's pretty and if she has a nice personality, why worry?

    She's not show quality. For that your best bet is to buy from a breeder who shows and does well.

    If she's standard her body will catch up to her tail in the next couple of months
