    Im not sure about cochins, but I will tell you that a bird at that age has a lot of changing left to do, and it's feet may darken or lighten as it ages.

    cochins should have yellow skin. I'd worry more about the black legs.

    Cochins should have as much yellow as possible on the legs and feet.

    If at least the bottoms of the feet are not yellow, then that IS a DQ.

    Edited to add that this is for ALL Varieties/Colors of Cochins.
