    Hello, I have one, possibly two, bantam cochin cockerels that I need to re-home soon. They are super sweet, tiny and adorable, but I have wayyy too many roosters and I need to find these guys good homes soon.

    One appears to be a red/blue and the other is a white splash, but I am not an expert on cochin colors. Their other brothers and sisters were a very very wide variety of colors. Not sure if that is something that is passed on in genetics. I currently only have chickens for pets so I cannot attest to the quality of them. I just know they are very little and very very sweet and cute.

    Here is the red/blue one-
    He has a lot more filling out to do, as he is only 4 months old, but his color is coming in beautifully and he is already trying to mate the chicken yard silkie tramp so he needs to be separated pretty soon. His older sister has a really nice cushion and shape to her so I think they have decent qualities, but as stated previously, I have them as pets. He also has nice leg and foot feathering and I don't restrict them at all so they'd probably be even better with a little more care.


    And this little guy is one that I am considering keeping mostly because he reminds me a little bit of a frizzle cochin rooster that was killed by my dog. However, if someone would give him an exceptional home, I could part with him. He is the sweetest out of all of the roosters, but I think it's also because he is the smallest. He also took the longest out of all of his brothers and sisters to get all of his feathers and still has a lot more filling out to do.


    Thanks again for looking!
