    Hi,

    I was given this bird (the white one) and told she was a cochin. I can't find a picture of a cochin that looks like her. Any guess? She has green legs and a rose comb.
    Thanks,
    Beth

    It looks like she has ear tufts which would make her an Easter Egger. Very pretty! They can lay pink, blue, or green eggs!

    How cool! That would be really neat. So you don't think she's a cochin?
    Thanks so much,

    Quote:Definitely not! Cochins are round little fluffballs with feathered feet and a straight comb. I am a little concerned that she looks like she's got saddle feathers which would make her a he. [​IMG] Are you positive it's a girl, and can you get a head shot? Preferably from the side? [​IMG]

    Hi,

    The same person who said she was a cochin said she was a she:(! I'll try to get another pic.

    Thanks again,
    Beth

    Ok, here are some pictures of the face.

    Looks like a EE roo to me. There isn't a drop of cochin blood in that boy.

    Good luck with him. He should start to crow before long. [​IMG]

    omg!!!! We live in the city of Ann Arbor and while we can have hens we cannot, no way, no how, have roosters. Every heard of a rooster that doesn't crow? hehe. I really like him/her. He lets me hold him and he talks to me. Although he does bite the kids and is a little aggressive with the other chickens, it would be a bummer to have to get rid of him.

    Thanks for the help about the breed. Here's hoping he/she is a she.
    Beth:rolleyes:

    Does anyone else have an opinion on whether or not this is a roo?

    I agree...with the head shot, it looks rooish to me. [​IMG] I don't know who you got your chickens from, but it seems like they don't know too much about them. [​IMG] What is your red one supposed to be? Looks like it has some cochin in it, but the head makes me think there's some Polish in her, too.

    At least they were given to you! I paid for some "cochins" once and got home and noticed ear tufts. [​IMG] My fault for not paying too much attention. I was mostly looking at the roo...he was gorgeous and a true cochin! LOL! The girls kind of came with him, but they've turned out to be great incubators! LOL!

    Sorry about the roo,

    Shelly

    She looks like my EE pullet that I thought for awhile was a roo too. Love her eyeliner! I do think it's a hen.
