    [​IMG]Ok. I purchased this girl 2 weeks old and was told she was a cochin bantam? But this doesn't seem accurate. Possible cuckoo?[​IMG][/B][/B][/IMG]

    Barred Cochin bantam is my guess.

    She doesn't appear to have feathered feet. Is it that the pic just isn't clear or close enough for us to see the feathers?

    If you click on the images, you can view a larger picture. The chicken does have feathered feet and legs.

    She is a feather-legged Cuckoo Marans.

    Thank yall. I knew when she caught up with the RiR there was no way a bantam! Does anyone know when they typically start laying? She is now 16 weeks.

    Give her at least another four weeks. You may have a gifted hen and start early but 20 is usually the standard.
