    Gold Laced French Black Copper Marans?

    Sorry it took me a while to answer but here is a photo of the dark eggs I am getting from these gold laced cochins. Colors in photos and on monitors will vary but this looks accurate to me on my Microsoft Surface 3 screen. The lighter eggs could be from black or gray cochins or from a buff...

    Bantam and Large Fowl Cochin crosses official thread! *many photos are welcome!*

    Looking at the above photo of Bootsie (Red bantam Cochin X LF Buff Brahma cockerel), he looks pretty much the same as my buff brahma rooster. And given the similarities between brahmas and cochins (not with regard to breed standards but to the casual observer who sees a large, plump bird with...

    Gold Laced Wyandotte/Cooper Marans cross

    I purchased what were labeled as Dark Copper Marans pullets at a local farm supply and they have all matured to have the gold laced coloration of a gold laced Wyandotte... but with feathered feet as I would expect from a French Dark Copper Marans chicken. I'm not disappointed since I like the...
