    i think from what i've been shown is that the birds are very full in feather for starts, meaning they are wide (like fluffy kinda.) if you want show quality birds its best to buy from a good breeder instead of trying hatchery birds. saves a lot of time and there are some great people on here with great birds! but also if you look at a cochin the feathering on the button(tail) is wide across on show birds too.check out the birds on cochinsrule .com [​IMG]

    Yours seem to show too much leg for a show cochin. This cochin pictured won the missouri state fair last year. (This is not my bird).

    The picture they showed you of the white cochin should answer your question. The black cochin needs a better cushion. The white (if it is a cochin) is not close.

    But you dont really need a show quality do you? I mean their just pets right? But yeah I do egree they are too skinny in the back. The black one is very cute.

    They're very cute pet quality birds. As far as type goes, you want something like this. This is my old bantam black cochin cock, Darth Vader. RIP.
