Recently purchased 8 chicks, 2 of which are Cochins. I had to get 2 of these girls because of their awesome feathered legs and feet. The breeder I bought from only had Blue Cochin hens available at the time, so I went with those. Now, I've read that the blue color in Cochins (and maybe other chickens?) doesn't "breed true," meaning you can end up with different colored offspring. I have one very dark colored Cochin who blends in with my Barred Rocks and Silver Laced Wyandotte chicks: My other Cochin is very light and at a glance blends in with my Buff Orpington chick: Anyways, my prediction is that the light colored Cochin may actually turn out to be a Splash Cochin and that the dark colored one may turn out to be a Black Cochin. Anyone have experience with Cochins that knows whether that sounds reasonable? Or may their colors change drastically as they grow?
