    Looks like I have one black, two blues, and two splashes to me. Is that right? (Ignore the buff orps that just had to be in the picture!)

    Thanks! Thought I was getting good at this but figured I'd better ask for a second opinion for a breed I haven't had before.

    Cute little chicks you have! The "blue" ones look exactly like the chick I recieved in March that ended up being a White Cochin! I haven't figured out how to load pictures yet (new laptop)...but will find a way to share if needed.

    This picture is of our White Cochin (LF) back in March. At the time, we thought the hatchery made a mistake and sent us a blue! She has since feathered out all white and we lovingly call her "Happy Feet" because it looks like she tap dances when she moves around! Thought I'd share.

    Cochins can surprise you! I had one I was sure was a splash- and she ended up such a dark blue- she's almost black-laced-blue. Cute babies! [​IMG]
