    Depends on what your goals for him are. If breeding for exhibition purposes is your plan he will not serve you well. If you are simply interested in friendly backyard fowl he'll be fine.

    Thank you for an honest answer. I have looked at the cochin standard site many times and realize like showing dogs beauty is in the eyes of the breeder/exibitor/judge. And like dogs there is a standard of perfection BUT there are many types depending on how someone interprets the breed standard. My cochin pullets are of better quality which I can definitily see myself. So I guess from what you are saying politely I should look for a better quality cockeral if I plan to "Perfect" my flock.[​IMG]
