Hi,

Ok I am addicted to the color blue I have blue cochins already and this year purchased blue orpington hatching eggs. I hatched several other breeds at the same time so there are some other breeds mixed in with my blue orp chicks my question is do these work like the cochins where I will get blue, splash or black?? And will there legs/feet be different color based on there feather color? I am pretty sure I know which ones are the blue orpingtons but so far they all are just a very very light gray like a splash and have very pale gray/blue legs I have one that I am pretty sure is a actual blue and his legs look black. Maybe this is a thing I have never noticed on my cochins because they have so many feathers but I am just trying to get a idea of how many I actually ended up with.

Thanks in advance Nicki

Yes from what I was told, BBS genetics work the same no matter the breed. (and even with different breeds - like a blue orp mated to a blue cochin)
