Identity crisis?

    I was given this bird as a week-old chick, supposedly a standard Cochin. I haven't been able to find a single photo of Cochins with these markings. Any suggestions? She was originally shipped from Ideal, so I'm not sure how they are in terms of accidentally mixing things up, etc.

    Doesn't matter to me either way WHAT she is, as she's an absolute sweetheart & a permanent resident...I'm just trying to sharpen my eye when it comes to breed identification.

    Muchos thankos!! [​IMG]

    Can you give us a picture of her standing up? Does she have feathered feet?

    The Dark Markings around her neck, remind me of a Jubilee Cochin. Here is a pic of an adult hen, and roo.

    Not a Brahma, Brahma's have pea combs.

    Edited to add: she looks like a cochin to me, just not a recognized color variety. It may be yet another color project Ideal is working on, that accidently got thrown in the mix.

    Does she have a few whiskers under her chin? or is that my imagination. She is very pretty. [​IMG]
