    I ordered 2 lavender cochins from ideal. Of course they weren't Show quality,and I expected that from a hatchery. The one hen I have left isn't too bad, although she is a little "long bodied" for a cochin. The color is a true lavender, sorry I don't have pictures. The biggest dissapointment I had in them is that they don't have yellow pads on the bottom of their feet,which is part of the breed standard......so I don't know I could technically call them "cochins". I'm very happy with my other ideal birds though.

    Quote:Breed her back to a High Quality Black Cochin. You should see an improvement in their offspring. These will be Black split to Lavender, so you'll need to breed the F1s together for Lavender birds.
