    Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to chickens and very new to this site.I thought you might be able to help me figure out what breeda of chicken that I just bought. It was listed as an ornamental chicken and is approx. 4-5monthe old. I cant tell if its a blue cochin or lavender orppington. Its a big, beautiful soft gray with lots of feathers on its feet. I'm leaning toward cochin but would be interested in hearing from the experts. Thanks for your help. (her name is Gracie) :)

    Pictures will help with the accuracy of the guesses, but Cochins have feathers on their feet, Orps do not.
