    Hello! I am hoping to order some cochins from Ideal and was wondering what these 3 mixes would look like...

    Blue Cochin-White Cochin
    Blue Cochin-Red Cochin
    Blue Cochin-Blue Cochin

    Thank you!

    Blue Cochin to Blue Cochin will result in 50% blue, 25% black, and 25% splash offspring.

    blue x white would be a toss up because white is capable of masking anything so you never know what you'll get.

    blue x red would likely throw 50% black, 50% blue, with all having red bleeding through; in the females it would show in the breast, and would be seen in the hackles and saddles of the males.

    blue x blue produces approximately 25% black, 50% blue, 25% splash.
