    These belong to my Father. We're trying to figure out if the rooster picture could be Mille Fleur Cochin or just a crazy mix of varieties. Before he molted, he had a lot more red on him than he does now. What do you think? The hen in the bucket house is mottled.

    He's actually wanting to sell this pair. We want to guessimate what his parentage is before listing them.

    He looks lika a MF project bird. They haven't perfected the color in Cochins yet, so really, they're all project birds. I like him.
