    Hello, just bought some new chickens that were sold as Cochins. Now I really don't care if they are pure but just wanted to know if Cochins ever come bearded? The almost black girl is bearded and the partridge? color isn't and they were sold together as 3.5 mths old.

    No, they're not supposed to. She's mixed with something.....silkies are common to mix with cochins. does she have 5 toes?

    They are some kind of Cochin mix, maybe with an Easter Egger.
