    Okay I bought these from a lady that was advertising them as Mottleds. But I know these are not mottled so What color are they? They are standard cochins. At frist I though barred but its more like the Cuckoo Maran barred . she called them Model? Theyare huge !! and one hen already went broody on the frist batch of eggs she found. Juts got them yesterday LOL

    The barred's tail feathers are more cochin. I believe it is a Barred cochin. And I believe the other is Cappuccino cochin roo.but that is my opinion. I could be wrong.

    The hen looks like a typical hatchery barred.

    The roo looks like a cuckoo--I can't tell if black or blue?
