Wow. He is such a stunning bird!!
I hope you don't mean someone stole him from the show.
Are all your birds as tame and gentle as this one looks Timbo?

Nah! sorry about that I put that in the wrong order. He was taken from his original cage to Championship row. Where he went against all other breeds, but was beaten by a Dark Brahma Cock of 3 years. This boy is only about 8 Months. Here are my other birds, I will put the others 30 odd on my website then post the link for those interested.

38 Cochins Exibited.

I only exhibited 8 of them, though when you have a sink filler like this chap, it certainly no easy job. :biggrin: :biggrin: :help:

I had another exploration into the showing world on Sunday 19th Feb at The Dawlish sea wall in Devon.Apologies for only showing Cochin's here, only the majority of the day was spent hindering Ooops I mean helping(Stewarding) Dave Scrivener.

61 Cochins entered at this regional Cochin show. Best Cochin was Alan and Kate Syms, with a really nice white cock bird.(Not a patch on Marcel, but Marcel unfortunately wasn't there. This judge appeared to like white's.

Then my birds entered.

Best Opposite sex. She came second at the Nat and at the Welsh Nat, so has staying power. ;)

Image

Then the others.

This pullet started off the day looking really nice, but she started ripping herself to bits???

Great to see more photos Timbo, it will be interesting to see where the Cochins that are coming into Australia from the U.K in 2013 come from. There seems to be a little variance in leg length and type but over all lovely birds. Cant wait to get my Cochins over here, but must not count my chickens before they hatch lol

I think leg length in general is fairly uniform. The amount of leg feather and fluff gives that view or impression. There are some breeders that have used Brahma, which have a longer leg and less leg feather. But I would like to think these would not be allowed to be exported as a symbol of the breed as was keep and show it. :thumbs:

I hadn't heard of Cochin egg's going going down to the green and gold land?? If Andy Marshal has anything to do with it, it will be top secret, so he might be able to fill his pockets!! :( :(
