    I am also working on chocolate bantam cochins-hence some of the chicks have feathered legs. So far I have three confirmed frizzles in the cochin project

    So far, my projects are coming along very well. I look to be hatching F2 this fall.

    So these are Duns, not true chocolates right ? What breed are you using to bring in the Dun/Choc gene ?

    I am using an old english game roo over black ameraucana hens and a black frizzle cochin hen. No these are not the true or self chocolates, they are dun chocolates.

    He may be, Speckledhen, but he has a nasty temperment. He does not like being touched. As long as I don't try to pick him up, he's fine. I bought him in 2008 and he has never calmed down. He makes pretty babies though. I have hatched many of his pure bred babies, and none have had his coloring. They have all been solid black, chocolate, or khaki. His babies have not inherited his temperment either, they are just darlings.
