    We were told that this baby is a Black Giant Cochin Hen. Can anyone confirm. She seemed unsure. 18767313_10154828772469092_276029087_o.jpg

    AWWW!!

    Not black but mottled would be my assessment. Way way to young for gender confirmation.

    Cute as a bugs ear though!

    Thank you! She was in a sexed bin, but .... HAHA
    What about the "giant" part? The word is a little scary as we are still 1 year new at raising chicks.

    She should grow to be about 8 to 10 pounds. Yup giant!!
    They are gentle giants though!

    Mine are still babies and have a long way to go. They will get tall the first year and fill out the second year.

    You are welcome. I am hoping you will post pics as she feathers out. I think she is going to be very pretty.
