    From what I can see she looks great. But is there a way to get a close up photo? There may be some problems that I can't see. For example: how many toes she has, how many points on her comb, skin color, beak color, and leg color and feathering. You can also get an A.P.A. Standard of Perfection and check in there. Many important things that you might not notice are the angle or her tail and the size of her body and comb and wattles. Many things to look for in a bird. But all of these answers can be found in the Standard of Perfection and on the Cochin Club website.

    Well, I have shown birds that have to many points and they don't get DQ, but it does put them down on the prize list. Things like that can be breed out with a quality roo. Luckily Cochins are a very common breed and you may be able to find a very nice roo at shows and online. Good Luck!!
