    We were told it was a Cochin but it's not developing like my others. About 6 weeks old. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Does it have puffy cheeks? It could be a White d'Uccle.

    Can you get a close up of the face? It really looks like a d'Uccle.

    I'm with Chicken Girl1. it looks just like our Ducky - she's a white d'uccle without the beard and muff. Yours looks to have a bit of puff in the cheek/chin area and is definitely a girl. In New Zealand we have a very limited gene pool and this isn't a popular breed with only a very few breeders working on improving the breed. But they are still gorgeous with wonderful personalities. We bought an older pullet and I was afraid she would never be tame like our babies who had a lot of handling but she is just the sweetest thing. She loves to be patted and picked up and comes rushing to see us.
