    I ordered Giant Cochin eggs and I had 5 hatch. I had a light grey, dark grey and 2 penguin looking ones and one penguin with brown markings.

    What are those colors I listed above called officially, besides Penguin? : >

    I dont know, but I need to take photography lessons from YOU~!

    ETA: I know this is corny, but I used to be a photographer for Glamour Shots back in the day. Yeah I know, laugh.... LOL And we had backgrounds like that, with the ultra intensive light. I can't for the life of me remember what the name is though. What do you call that again>?

    LOL, bright white is usually called High Key. Not sure if that's what you mean.

    I do trades for lessons! : >

    Did you say green? Never saw a green chick before, at least not a natural green.
