I have a standard blue cochin who I was told was a hen. We named her Sylvia. After the past two days of her/him acting more like a roo I took some photo's and the BYC consensus - it is a roo. This is my one and only giant cochin and I didn't need another roo. I was kind'a sad. However, after hearing from a few BYC giant cochin owners I am intrigued. So I'm asking for a little giant cochin encouragement. Please show us your giant cochins both hens and roos and tell us why you LOVE this breed. Why would you encourage someone to get this breed? What are its endearing qualities? To start off, here is a picture of my new boy, who needs a new name. At first I thought we would call him Sylvester but I'm not fond of the name. So I am also looking for ya'lls suggestions of new names for this guy. I can't wait to see and hear all about what you love about this breed.
