    3 or so years ago I had a standard Lemon Blue Cochin Rooster

    and no hens but a game hen ( Standard Wheaten Game Hen ) critters had got everything but these to and i have never seen but this one standard lemon blue rooster and so i didn't know if he would make it threw the in-pending winter so i bred him to the hen and many colors came out but there was one colored like a lemon blue with slightly feathered legs

    and so they grew and the rooster made it and I live in Georgia and around here is is really hard to find standard cochins at least for me but anyway so the rooster made it threw the winter and so i bred the hen that looked like him back to him and got a more robust hen with more feathers but still not a cochin .

    So my big lemon blue got old and pasted so i got a Standard Splash Rooster and raised him last year

    So i bred these together and have got some young of this year and the older one looks like a pure blue / lemon blue coloring slightly lemon on his neck . So what do yall think here is the chicks of this year different ages
