Hi, I bought several bantam cochin chicks last year. I was told "gray" and "white", of course I knew gray meant "blue", but the coloring of my chickens has me confused. I just hatched out 10 chicks from this rooster, the mothers are a columbian rock (hatchery cross of CR roo over RIR hen?) and "black broilers" (dark cornish X australorp, temperament was so good I kept the ones that were solid black with green and purple sheen - side note, these guys were from ideal, and even the 2 cockerals I have are practically lap babies in spite of their huge size). Anyway, the eggs were collected in temps near 20F, so only 10 hatched. From this hatch it seems I have 9 black and 1 yellow (white, I'm guessing, I dont see any pattern). The chicks just hatched yesterday, and are barely dry, though I can get pictures of them if needed. So, with that information and these pictures, will someone PLEASE tell me what color my little pair are? (btw, I did not look at the underside of the feathers because I noticed one of my girls is obviously a "favorite", so I got distracted by her missing feathers, etc...) oh, and pardon the condition of the ground, they do have access to a decent grass area, but a) it is still winter here, and b) they saw me coming and ran to their "eating area" where the ground is very worn. Thanks SO much for any help/advice/ideas, even if it's just "hey, those aren't even cochins"
