    Hi,
    This is my Frizzled bantam cochin, Flower, whom I absolutely adore. She's a real lapcat, just the sweetest thing. She's now about 17 weeks old, and I'm sooo hoping she's not a he, but I have my doubts. This is my first Cochin, so I have no experience with this breed. I've looked at a gazillion pictures online, and just can't tell for certain. Any opinions from people familiar with cochins would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much (and fingers crossed---really want to keep this one)!

    I had two frizzled cochins and their combs were red early on but they were small combs just like yours. I kept thinking they were roos until they laid an egg. This was a splach Cochin and you can see how red her comb was.

    Aww. So pretty; love the color!

    Thank you for your reply, I hope you're correct. My daughter is especially in love with this little one.

    Wow! She's a cutie. [​IMG] I have one that is about the same color, she's a teenager and her frizzle is not as cute as yours? In a way, it looks like she is a mix with a showgirl, as her neck has very thin feathers?
