    Okay all, sorry the picture is so shabby. I had to sell my good digital camera because we're having some financial strain right now.

    Anyway, here is Christopher William...he's about 6 months old...but we don't know what his breed is.

    He does have feathers on his feet you can't see for the grass. Any ideas?

    Black Cochin, though it doesn't have quite the distinctive "S" shape between the head and tail as I think a Cochin would.....

    Well remember, I got him from the Feed Store, so there's always a possibility he's a mix of something.

    I'm looking at Cochins and Langshans...he does resemble both...it'll be curious to see what he develops into. [​IMG]
