    I don't know about cochins but know a bit about colour. Are lighter feather shafts okay in buff cochins? Or is his shaftiness due to flash on camera?

    I'm not sure on the standards/requirements, but I'd use him! He has a nice round back, and good color. [​IMG]

    He has a nice strait comb. How old is he? It takes a std cochin 18 months to reach maturity.

    He is about 5 1/2 months, and is a buff Bantam Cochin just started to crow about 2 weeks ago.
