    Picked this guy up today from the flea mkt..didn't need him, but couldn't leave him in that tiny cage. Is he a Cochin?

    He looks like a cochin. Possibly silver laced. Are you going to keep him?

    Not even close to Silver Laced, Max. Could you get a better shot of him from the side? I'd either say a mix or some sort or possibly barred/cuckoo.

    Yea, definitely some sort of mix. I see some barring in the saddles and hackles. He still looks nice nonetheless [​IMG]

    Not pure. But I'd bet he's a cochin/barred rock cross... just a guess but personality means a lot in my book sounds like a keeper.
