    I am interested in seeing the quality of Bantam Cochins from Ideal. I know there are other Ideal threads - I am wondering about cochins and the quality from ideal. Pics would be great if possible. Thank you all so much.

    "not allowed to" really means "wait till you see the chicks!!!"

    Quote:Check out his legs and feet (including bottoms). If they are yellow, he's not a Langshan. He also has too much feathering on his legs to be a Langshan. Other than that........ [​IMG] I'd use him for a black bantam Langshan project.
