    Ok.. So.. This one is so pretty, in my opinion, but I have NO clue what breed he/she is!
    A pretty, soft shade of gray, feathered feet - any ideas?
    Also, I am thinking a pullet, anyone else?

    Thank you! I definitely will.. He/she is a sweetie. I picked him out of a HUGE assortment, he was the only one with feathered feet out of probably 250 or so chicks. Had no idea what I was getting. lol

    Thanks, hope you share picks of your Cochin Rooster once you get him!
    Powder blue sounds so pretty.

    After looking at photos, i'm not sure whether my lil one is a splash or a blue,
    some of the blue Cochins seem to start out light like him/her.
    Only time will tell I guess! lol:)
