    Hi, any guesses on this breed? The eggs we got were all supposed to be LF Orpingtons, but I'm thinking this is a bantam of some sort. This one was hatched on 2/9 of this year. Pay no attention to my BO cockerel who was trying to photo bomb. Thanks!

    I'm thinking Bantam Cochin cockerel of some variety or another.

    That's what I was leaning towards. He's a cute little guy, but we don't do bantams. Want to list him for sale, but I'd like to be able to tell people what he is.

    Cochin bantam for sure. Closest to a blue red pattern. Lemon blue would be nearly solid light blue with a little yellow in the hackle feathers.
