MOTTLED COCHIN THREAD~! - Page 47

What will I get if I put black mottled in the pen with red and blue cochins? Also can you cross self blues with black mottled? I don't show but I do like pretty chickens. I don't sell either. Just for my own pleasure.

Self blue aka lavender is recessive...I think mottled might be as well? So SB to BM probably all black split SB & Mottled...I've heard about blue mottled projects, they recommended splash to black mottled which gave all blue split mottled...

 

So black mottled to blue would give black and blue split mottled....I'm not sure how the Red genes work but maybe someone can answer that?

I have a large group of 4 month old Mottled Cochins Bantam cockerels if anyone needs a little boy. Right now they all have a lot more white on them than their father. I will try to get pics. Parents below. Only $10 ea if you pay for box ($15) and shipping (varies). 

 

 

 

Rare Feathers Ranch in Herald CA NPIP 93-437. This year I have trimmed down to concentrate on my Mottled Breda Fowl, my Basque Hens, and my Blue Laced Silver Wyandottes. I have chicks and young birds on occasion. Breda eggs and chicks now available for pre-orders. BLSW and Basque available now in small numbers.

I've got a question for you guys. How many colors do mottled cochins come in? I've seen black mottled and blue mottled so far.

Is there a such thing as a large fowl mottled cochin? It seems Meyer and My Pet Chicken only sell them in bantam size.

They do, just a lot more rare in LF variety. LF Cochin in general seem to be pretty uncommon.
