    I have 2 cochin hens, one blue and one black frizzle. I am looking for a rooster to breed them to. Any advice on a color roo to go with would be helpful. I am just getting into the cochins and dont know much about them yet. Thanks!

    If you use a Black roo, you'll get black and blue offspring. If you use a blue roo, you'll get blue, black and splash offspring. If you use a splash roo, your black hen will produce all blue offspring and your blue hen will produce about 50% blue and 50% splash offspring. I hope this helps.
