    I love the colors and the feathers on your Cochin [​IMG] . What is his official color? Is he LF or bantam? I want a LF cochin so bad but have heard they don't do well in the heat. Summers where I live can get to 100 degrees plus for a weeks or so, then drop. It's a dry heat here in California. Do you think a Cochin would do ok here or not? [​IMG]
    Thanks for starting this thread, looking forward to lots of pics! [​IMG]

    Thank you both, I adore him.

    His color is black mottled, and he's a bantam. Rizz, is also my first cochin, and thanks to him I have added 8 others to the flock. I have a blue, a black mottled, a dark blue mottled, a white, and a splash (those are his girls, all straight feather) And then last weekend I got 3 little Mille Fleur bantam cochin chicks. He has completely addicted me to them.
    Hopefully someone will pop in that can answer your heat question. [​IMG]

    How beautiful they all are!
    I would post pix but my computer crashed and now that i am back on I can't get to my photos until we hook Drivezilla back up.
    I will post some soon. I love Frizzles. I have photos on my website under my Frizzles page but haven't added new photos recently and I have so many new colors popping now.
