    We got these at the Mt. Hope, OH auction and they are so sweet. The tag said that they were columbians, but didn't say what breed.
    We're thinking that they are cochins, but just wanted to see what the experts have to say.... :O)

    They're so round and cute!

    I would agree with that, however, the hens look like they have pea combs to me. Maybe my eyes are bad, but that's what I see. [​IMG]

    It looks to me like someone was trying to make columbian cochins by using brahmas or wyandottes and then found some or gave up but, though very pretty, these aren't cochins.

    The roo screams brahma cross to me while a couple of those hens look like they have the beginnings of a cochin tooshie...
