Hope I'm posting this question in the right sub forum...

Does anyone know what a red Cochin (bantam) looks like when it's +/- 5 weeks old? Are they supposed to be really red? I think I might have one, but I'm not sure, maybe he's too pale.

Here's ours, I was told it could be a bad red or bad dark buff. The color is not to standard, she was around 2mo. in pic. I like her, anyway sweet bird. I have a lil buddy for her same color.
hope that helps.

@ Chicky Mama: she's cute! Please do post a picture when she gets older!


Quote:But his dad is buff and his mother is red. So can he technically, be red? Or will he just be very dark buff?

He's handsome! I think mine will turn out pretty much the same.


Edit: a recent picture of the little dude, 6 weeks old:

Thank you so much for posting this picture!! We have a chick that was raised with silkie bantams, but was obviously NOT a silkie :) So glad to know WHAT she is now - and it was your picture that sealed the deal. Thank you!
