    I have a gorgeous pair of white cochin Frizzles. The hen is first generation of the roo on a prize white Cochin. My hen won BB and BV at the Winston-Salem NC show where I bought them. I am thinking it would be gorgeous to put the roo on a Buff Orp... What do you all think?

    oh he can get the job done, I used to have cochin bantam x BAs running around here, they learn to hold on to her back feathers, not the head. I bet that would make some cute birds.

    I'm thinking about getting a silkie roo to cross with my EE & RIRs for some big broodies
