    This cochin is about a month old. She is very sweet when you hold her but screams like shes getting killed when we go to pick her up. She is supposed to be a partridge cochin but she looks like the Rhode Island pullet we sold last week.

    It is a buff. But it doesnt look like she has any feathers on her middle toe and her leg feathering isnt very thick. Mine are about that age and they look like they have an extra chick attached to their legs they have so much feathering. Could she be mixed? And are you sure she is a she, because her wattles look awfully pink.........

    That is a he.

    I think he looks like the hatchery quality Red Cochins I've seen.

    Looks like a Buff Cochin to me! May get redder as it get older and molts though.

    That's a red. My buffs are way lighter, and my reds looked just like that at that age, except they had way more leg feathers.
