Cochin Rooster

This is a Cochin rooster we own. I like this breed including appearance except for the feathers on the feet. Poo always ends up stuck on the feet feathers and makes them look kind of nasty. My wife loves them though, as does her mom. They are great brooding hens. They will sit on a clutch of eggs and hatch them out, even if they were not their own eggs. We can even put duck eggs and they will hatch them out. Great brooders. I like the look of them too, but I just can't get past the feet.
