    Ordered several chicks. Can't figure out which is which! Is this a Mottled Cochin Bantam or Black Frizzle Cochin Bantam?

    I'd say this one's the black frizzle cochin.
    A mottled cochin is mainly yellow with a black spot on its head. Picture:

    This is a tough one. We had a black frizzled Cochin that was all black with no white at all. I think that this chick is the black frizzle as well, but I'm not entirely sure.

    I think it's a black. Or maybe a dark blue. But I don't think it has enough white to be mottled.
