    Very nice head and necks. You may want to bring in some hens with more rolled buns but these guys have nice leg feathering and the color is lovely. I think you have something nice to work with there and we all have to start somewhere.
    But I am only a hobbyist and breed for what I like to see more than what everyone else decides is correct. You should visit my website and see what I breed in standard Cochins. I love them and enjoy raising the chicks. Mostly I sell out before I get to see many mature though![​IMG]

    I was thinking that the only thing it looks like needs work to my inexperienced eye is their cushions, but fluff, and their breasts - all need to be larger/more full.

    Note - the cock has a few too many points on his comb.


    But I agree with Nadine, these are very nice to begin with. I think that you should easily be able to breed for better birds with a vigilant breeding program.

    They are cute, I must admit! Congrats on your birds [​IMG]

    I think they're beautiful.

    How old are they?

    Chickens are at the top of their game for beauty at around 2 years.

    Yep, just wait up for them. I'm sure they are very show-worthy. [​IMG]
