    Was a freebie and the store was unsure. Her beak has a blueish tint to it. She has some feathering on legs but very minimal. She is the sweetest bird I have and actually begs to be picked up and loves to be pet. She is about 10 weeks old as I picked her up on September 21st. [​IMG]

    Body type and leg feathering point to Cochin bantam cross to me.

    I posted in a Facebook group and everyone said a Cochin mix or poorly bred Cochin. But she is such few feathers I find Cochin hard to believe. She has almost no feathering compared to my younger Cochin:

    I love her regardless, she is by far the sweetest and friendliest of all the chickens. She's so sweet I let her come in and join us for lunch today [​IMG]

    She could be a cochin mix, or she could be a poor representative of the breed.

    I have a hen I hatched here. Both parents were of decent type, heavily feathered legs, etc. Well, Nellie has tiny, scant feathers on her legs. Always has. I know her parents for sure. And her siblings look like Cochins. Sometimes odd things happen when you breed birds.
