    I am 99.9% sure they are Cochins of some type and all the hens are uniform in color.

    I also got a pair of barred Cochins with them, and was told both types came from a hatchery and are about 9 weeks old.

    Thank You for any help.

    I have a hard time believing 9 week old anything with those waddles and comb. But definitely cochin looking.

    Sorry for the wet feet, they splashed in there water. The pitchers don't do these birds justice.

    I don't know what the hens are called in that pattern- looks different than my partridge LF, but hard to tell from the thumbnail. They have to be older than you were told- but nice little birds!

    I LOVE banty cochins- they are loads of fun!

    I keep and breed Partridge Cochin Bantams(I have about 60 now) and they look identical to Fudgie's. These are vary different.

    Definately Cochin, Hatchery I Doubt Because They Dont Look Like Any Standardized Color--- The Roo Could Pass For Partridge, But The Hens Look Like They Fall Somewhere Between Goldlaced And Partridge/ Black --- They Dont Conform To Any Color Really. They Are Alot Older Than 9 Weeks---- Cochins Mature Very Slowly And The Roos Wattles And Comb Are Fully Developed--- 9 Mos Old At Least, Maybe More--- What Does He Have For Spurs? At 9 Mos Old They'd Be Not Much More Than Hard Buds.

    They're Very Attractive Lil Guys!
