My Cochin hen went broody in Jan sitting on 3 eggs and I brought her in tonight because the eggs were peeping well one is part way hatched I caught a glimpse when she scolded me for checking on her, lol. And to my surprise it was a blue silver colored chick with white feathers only saw the head and one wing so far. I'll get a better look when they are all hatched and dry. So whats up with that color my Cochin is white and I'm sure they are eggs laid by her, and daddy is a Cochin (partridge), or a blue copper maran. The Maran makes sense as far as the blue color I guess. But I was under the impression that blue was recessive and white was dominant so wouldn't the chick be white? Or am I wrong yet again.
