    Well I bought two Cochin babies and they came with a broody. I wanted to know if anyone has any idea of what breed she is. I was thinking cochin\EE cross.

    I agree, she looks like a cross. The type doesn't look quite right for a purebred Cochin. Pretty girl!
     
  3. She is beautiful! You can send her to me. ;D

    She does not appear to be a purebred Cochin, so yes, she is probably a cross. EE + Cochin is most likely. She's very pretty!

    I really don't see the cochin in her. I'm not a bantam person but I know there are other feather legged, bearded bantam breeds out there. She just has a total wrong body type and wing set for a cochin.

    Now that I look at her again, I see your point. Perhaps she has some White D'Uccle in her? That breed has a beard, feathered legs, and is a bantam.
