    I know a guy that is selling murray McMurray hacthery stock giant cochin partridges and they are so hard to find around here... I didn't much want hatchery stock but if they are decent enough to work with even... And hes a bit far out and no pictures to see so its go or no go. Soo I wanna see the quality of Giant Cochins from MM!

    I wasn't sure where exactly to post this so...

    I plan to start ordering from mcmurray. But I have ordered a lot of cochins from ideal poultry. I can say their giant black and barred cochins are beautiful. Can't say much for the rest of the colors though. Here is a picture of a barred from ideal if this helps. The black picture doesn't do her justice, so I'm not gonna post it.

    Not the best pic to show him off, but here's a pic of my partridge cochin roo from McMurray. He's 4 months old. Only just now starting to fill out any tailfeathers. Has a lot of new pins coming in on his neck too. He's a bulky stocky-bodied guy.

    Angel, I do not believe it is a contest. I had thought this was in another forum and was moved over here, but it's possible it was put over here by mistake?

    I know it is not a contest. The rules clearly state that you aren't supposed to make a topic in this part of the forum just for posting pictures. There must be judgement.

    I have 4 buff cochin pullets from MM that are 41 weeks old but they are molting right now. If I get home early enough today I'll snap some photos.

    Angel, you may be right, but we have many skilled moderators who do this as a job. If a rule is broken, the moderators can handle it.
