Out of my 5 Ideal bantam cochins (10 weeks old), this is the one I think I'm going to keep. The other 4 have really big vulture hocks, and this one doesn't seem to have any. I don't think his comb is really great, but I'm thinking that a comb would be easier to work on than breeding vulture hocks out of future generations. Right? I've really considered keeping a second one, but I don't think I want to perpetuate the vulture hocks, so I'm going to chance it and keep just him. There is one pullet with larger vulture hocks, but I have an acquaintance that wants a pair of bantam blue cochins, and I am going to send her that one. She doesn't give a hoot about standards. The rest of the pullets seem to be developing nice cushions and no vulture hocks. So what do you think? Can anyone tell me about this bird's strengths and weaknesses? I know he's just a baby and has a lot of developing to do, but what do I watch him for?
