    These little guys started crowing at 4 1/2 weeks old so I know they are roos. I'm thinking the little blue or lavender one is a cochin but not sure about the black one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I'm going with dark Brahma on the second one (cochin on the 1st).

    Thanks for your response. Would you say the cochin is a blue or lavender?

    The cochin is probably 'self blue' which is the same as lavender. The other looks like it might be a cochin as well, though not sure of the color. Might be mottled, or could be blue, it's hard for me to tell when they have their fluff!

    #2 is not a Brahma. It has a straight comb like a cochin. Brahmas are rose-combed.

    Sorry, we don't have Brahma's here so I was only going on pictures.

    Brahmas are pea-combed, but yeah, they're both Cochins.

    They are both cochins, the first is a self blue and the second looks like a silver laced, but hard to tell when in molt.

    Thank you all. I would of never thought the black one was a cochin. They seem so different to me in body shape. Thanks again for all your input.
