    Are you sure they are Cochins? The lavender one with the orange head resembles a porcelain Millie fleur D’uccle

    Well that’s what they were sold as...this is my first time having them and a smaller chicken..so I’m not very educated on what they are or look like...it’s more of a yellow than an orange tho there is a tad hint of it...

    I just looked them up and they are tho I have no clue on how to pronounce that :lol: they are all three definitely the same kind of chick..girl at store said they were Cochins..she seemed pretty knowledgeable has ducks and chickens herself and also incubates and breeds some...not saying she’s right tho...I looked up both and as of yet they do resemble the porcelain Mille see I forgot already :lau..I’ll get it tho if they are and they are beautiful I’m almost hoping they are those!! What’s the main differences between the two? Like I noticed the Cochin chicks seem more upright than the milles ? If so they are not much upright..but that also could been pics I looked at..anything or way I should take pic make it easier to tell?

    When they are adults the Cochin is huge a fluffy. But the miles are a smaller bantam

    These are supposed to be Cochin bantams...I mean the differences between the two as chicks? They look very similar in pics I’ve seen so I can see how someone could mistake one for the other
