    I have a black rooster, and two females, one is black and one is white. The black hen went broody and hatched a baby and it is yellow, now she was laying on several eggs as i have other hens in the house to, but it has feathers on its hocks and feet so im pretty sure it is a cochin. Which hen did this come from? and is it a buff? thanks

    Also if anyone can give me the possible colors i can get from this trio i would love to know thanks again:D[​IMG][​IMG]

    my gosh that is big ill try to resize it. this next picture is of daddy, hes in the light and his down feathers make him look like he could be a blue, but i dont think he is, hes normally all black just the sunlight i believe. and the chick hasnt really come out yet so thats the best i can do but its all yellow with a few darker yellow areas on its back and has feathers on its feet thats all i know.

    so what your saying is it was from my white hen then any color can come from my black roo and white hen? i looked at pics of cochin babies and this chick in my opinion resembles a buff. can i ever get a blue or say a slash from this trio ever? thanks again:D[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    doubt you'll get a buff (clean one that is), you can also get columbian, barred, or mottle if the 2 of them carries the gene.

    hmmm so far every color you have suggested i can get is not a yellow chick, even the white i guess a lighter color than mine as a chick. only thing yellow is a buff. maybe its a buff mix or something. Do you know what yellow cochin chicks turn out to be? also this could be a mix from another hen to that im not even considering. i wonder what a black cochin roo would make with some of my other hens, barred rock, two red stars/comets, thats all that he mates with from my flock.
