    I have 2 cochins that were supposed to be black or blue. Can you tell me what colors they are? Also, can you tell if they are roos or not yet?

    They are 2 weeks old yesterday. Thanks!!

    #1 - bigger of the 2 and has way more feathering!!

    Their blue. If black should be black. or white on chest. and face and black all over like most black fowl. (As biddies). But truthfully. they look splash to me (with is kind of like a.... White blue. but its called blue)


    Edit:5:59 PM CST. I forgot to add.. They do look like splashes but dont feel too bad or anything thinking that you might have gotten Ripped off or some sort (theres no reason to be that way. but some people are just like that) A lot of times. Blues will come looking After the.. Lighter type of blues (Splashes) So they will probably feather out to be Blue .

    looks like both hens to me, but their cochins which i've never had. BUT. By the combs/wattles. they both look like hens. and by the Feathers on the wing. Its a hen for sure.
