This is a pic of a bantam Cochin chick that I hatched out from my own flock of birds. I have NO barred Cochins whatsoever (and never have), so I'm clueless as to where this came from. Maybe the breeder that I bought my hatching eggs from wasn't totally forthcoming with details of his stock? Also, what is my best bet as far as breeding to continue and improve this color pattern? Should I breed him to barred or blue?
