    I am NOT AN EXPERT!!! but I think your roo should have a lot more feathering on his legs. And should be more "horizontal" than vertical. I can't tell how the feathering on the splash is. The frizzle looks OK.

    There are so many great and fair judges here that help out with the contests that are here in BYC yet I believe the roo should have more leg and foot feathers, I believe (Not Sure) that cochins should have feathers on 1 outside toe and the 2nd toe on 1/2. Other then that, you have some nice healthy birds, keep up the great work! [​IMG]

    They're pet quality, and lovely never the less.

    The rooster's feathering is too tight, he should be twice as fluffy, he has more of a normal tail than the "cushion" that cochins should have. He's too tall, you should barely be able to see if he's standing or sitting because their legs are so short and they are so squatty in build.

    The hen is ok, I'm not sure if her tail is just molting or what, but she's the nicest of the three, but still not show quality.

    The frizzle looks like he's frazzled (comes from breeding two frizzles together) making his feathers too thin and sparse. His type isn't good either, nor coloring.
