    I was just wondering if someone had ever done a breeding project with Standard Cochins and Langshans and maybe even Orps to get an even bigger fluffier bird? What would be a good breed to cross with to gain even more size but not taking away from the looks? Just something that crossed my mind.

    My work is slow right now so I have a lot of time to read on the internet and ask a lot of questions [​IMG]

    cwc, yes please try this and let us see the results. I have 5 Cochin pullets and I would like to get a few Langshans. Maybe I could get a Roo and try it myself. LOL.[​IMG]:ya:thumbsup

    Quote:Have you seen pics of those great big Black langshan roosters? Or the one with the blue? Man made my mouth water.. thought maybe crosshing with the cochin could get more feathers on the feet and the height of the lanshans and the bulk of the cochins-- But not a chicken geneticist.

    ps Wish someone would read this who had done this and post some pics.
