    I bought this hen last week. Was told she is a cochin. What do you think? I wasn't sure but she was so pretty that I just had to have her!!! I just want to know what she is so that I can figure out what type of eggs she will lay! Thanks in advance!

    Nope, not a cochin. Maybe a light brahma?

    I was wondering lol. I saw the feathered legs and thought maybe it is a cochin but the more I looked at pics the more I realized she probably wasn't....thanks!!

    Yes, light Brahma.

    She will grow into a big bird with small (for the hen's size) light eggs and mine lay 5 or 6 per week.
    My girls tend to go broody quite often and are good mums.
    She will mature at about the same rate as a cochin i.e slowly and may not lay eggs until about 6 months old.
    Brahmas are friendly birds, easy to handle, and live and lay for many years.
