Last year I purchased a cute little Bantam Cochin chick from a local guy ( down the street ). Chick grew up and turned into a cute little rooster. Flashfoward to a few weeks ago. I traded some chicks to a young girl about an hour and a half from me for a "buff" colored hen and a blue Rooster. So I start doing some looking online and come across a picture of a wheaten hen on feathersite. They are not identical but my hen does look an awful lot like the hen on feathersite. Then this past weekend I came across an ad on a local classified site and there was a listing for a "buff" bantam cochin. I emailed for a picture and strangely enough, the hen looked identical to mine. Unfurtunately, the hen sold before I could go pick her up :-( So now I'm curious. I emailed the girl I got my hen from and asked her where she got her. She responds that she got her from a guy who lives locally to me. To be exact, the same guy that my rooster came from. So I went back and looked and my rooster does look a LITTLE like the picture on feathersite of a Wheaten Rooster. Its probably a stretch really but I am curious now and just have to know. Do I have.. A - A pair of Wheatens? B - A pair of really low quality Wheatens? C - Just say no to drugs! Here are the pictures. First up are the pictures from feathersite to compare to. This is my rooster as a chick My Rooster now My hen She is molting and doesn't look as good in these pictures And here is the picture of the hen that sold this past weekend on the local website. I really hate that I missed her. And just for fun. Here is the blue rooster that I got as a package deal with the mystery hen. So I am dying to know, what do you guys think? Am I suffering from "coop blindness?"
