    I bought some chickens last night. Some of them look like bantam black cochin frizzles. The only thing is the roosters have reddish/goldish hackle feathers. What would this color pattern be called?

    I also got 2 standard sized hens. One lays a dark brown egg and one a green egg. The lady insisted the black one was the easter egger but I think she was confused. The other hen has greenish legs and cheek feathers and looks an awful lot like my red/brown EEers. She couldn't remember what the name was of the second hen but she said she was sure it wasn't an EEer.

    EDITED TO ADD PHOTOS

    Here are the bantam black frizzles... Are they cochins? I know you can't really tell from the photo but they do have feathered feet.

    This is the hen the lady said was NOT an EEer, but I think it is. It has a pea comb and muffs.

    This is the hen she said was an EEer, but I think might be a black sex link

    One of the hens laid a dark brown egg and the other laid a Olive green egg today.

    Wellies aren't Muffeed, And have yellow legs [​IMG] So it sounds like you have 2 EEs

    The Frizzle is probably "leaking" red. It happens sometimes with black Varieties

    Thanks blackbird. When you say the blacks can "leak" red, does that mean their entire hackles can be red with no black at all? That is what I am seeing in both of these roos. The one that looks more like a welsummer to me isn't muffed. But I think it has black legs. I guess it could be an easter egger too. Or a black sex link maybe.

    I updated the photos and now that I got to look at the hens, I think I have an EEer and a Black Sex Link... Does that seem right?

    Separate the hens to see which lays which colour of egg. Or put some food colouring in one's vent.
