    Please help Identify

    I ordered pure bred cochins from Ideal Poultry. However, I got a buff one in the mix with columbian markings on it's neck and black in the tail feathers. I sent them a picture to identify because this obviously wasn't a pure bred buff cochin. Ideal Poultry sent this picture to the owner of the chickens. He stated that is was a buff brahma (which is not what I ordered). However, I thought brahmas had pea combs and this definitely has the single comb of the cochin. I have contacted many different breeders and sent them pictures with different responses. I know there are bantam buff columbian cochins but have not heard of standard size buff columbian cochins. Is it possible that I could have that or is this something else?


    Thanks everyone!

    Looks like a cross between a buff brahma and a buff cochin. Even though he has a single comb he has a long tail for a cochin. They both have feathered legs and feet. Coming from a hatchery who really knows what you got though.

    Wow- that would be an awesome project bird!!!!! I'd guess it was a brahma with the wrong comb, or a brahma x cochin.
