    Looks like a Jap. , but I'm no expert. [​IMG] Looks like a Buff Cochin [​IMG] Sure, you can breed any two chickens so long as there is not a huge size difference [​IMG] I have no idea which colors you will get though. Probably some that look like mom and some that look like dad and maybe some surprise colors as well [​IMG] Yup, you can breed the others as well, but again, no idea what color you will get. They are worth as much as people are willing to pay for them [​IMG] However, I love my little Mille Fleur d'Uccle so much that I would pay more for another compared to some other breeds [​IMG] Porcelains are harder to come by and will fetch a better price I would imagine.

    Hmmm... the last one... RIR??? Is it standard or bantam sized?

    I think you got them all spot on,..cept the Cochin male. He isnt Splash. I cant really see his color well since your holding him but he looks awesome! Very pretty!

    You'll get some interesting colors if you breed the cochins together, but they'll still be pure cochin. The d'Anvers will give you all mille fleurs unless he carries porcelain, then you'll get half and half.

    The cochin roo looks like a mix between... buff, blue, and columbian or something, haha. He's got some awesome colors, his babies would be interesting!

    you'd get a mutt. People seem to think that if you breed two breeds you'll get the conformation you want and the color you want. It doesn't work that way at all. It'll take many generations and weeding out tons of birds to get a cochin with decent mille fleur coloring.

    You'd get a strangely colored bird with light foot feathering and much lighter bild and more upright than the cochin. Also if you were going to try to breed mille fleur cochins I wouldn't use that cochin rooster, his coloring will make everything harder.

    That white one kind of looks like my Old English hen.....it has long legs. I bought my hen as a black Japanese only to find out she wasn't that. My hen carriers her tail just like a Jap but her legs are longer.

    Feathersite.com has good pics of all kind of chickens. That's where I Id my guys at.
