    Is anybody working on the large fowl Mille Fleur Cochin?

    If yes, do you have any visuals of your birds yet?
    If no, why not?

    I think a LF of this variety would be stunning. Why is everyone only focusing on bantams?

    Someone may very well be working on it. Bear in mind, the base colors used to begin mille fleur bantam cochins are mottled, buff columbian or wheaton. In our Colorado shows, I've not seen any large fowl in any of those colors. Maybe someone could put a Speckled Sussex with buff cochin. All depends on what people like to do with their time & resources.

    I am bumping this 6-month-old post to see if anyone knows of any more being done in this direction? I am very interested in mille fleur cochins but I can't have bantams (they'd just be fuzzy hawk food around here). I'd love to know if anyone has taken this on...?
