    We had the same problem when we let our birds out of the breeder pens this summer. The BLR crossed with our standard cochins too. I popped some of the eggs in the incubator just for the heck of it. The crosses came out with some feathering on their legs (not as massive as a pure cochin), yellow skin, and a rose comb like a wyndotte. No lacing on the feathers in the first generation at least. I gave those chicks away and a friend of mine still has some. They have the body of a wyndotte, but the coloring of the cochin parents and still partial feathering on the legs.
