    I got 20 of these packing peanuts roughly 6 weeks ago with my Russian Orloff order and am keeping them long enough to see if I am lucky enough to end up with any females. I am pretty sure they are all Cochins, but I do not know what color variation they are, they are all pretty similar in color to this one. This one is one of the biggest and most feathered. Can anyone tell me what exactly this would be considered? Thank You.

    It looks like a pullet. As far as coloring goes, she looks like a mix between a Partridge Cochin and a Black Cochin.

    I agree, there's a mix color.
