    One of my cochins, a splash, has yellow feet. The lavender has blue feet. They are two weeks old. Is the colors okay? I can't find a standard for lavender, so IDK what color they are supposed to be.

    a cochin should have yellow feet. a lavender cochin is not recognized so i guess it doesnt matter what color their feet are.

    All cochins should have yellow legs and feet. Some are allowed to have swarthy yellow shanks and feet, swarthy meaning shaded with black. This is due to the extended black gene carried by black or black linked birds such as blue. Answer to your question: feet and legs need to be as yellow as possible.
