    This is my 4 week old Blue Cochin...she is adorable! Her name is Luna and my question is regarding her color. How Blue will she be or is she a splash of some sorts? She loves the camera btw.

    The markings on her face and neck...

    So is my girlie going to be that beautiful Blue or a beautiful Splashy sort of gal?

    Thanks Cochin and color experts for your opinion. My Red Cochin has a light head and I must get a pic of her today too...

    I think she may be a splash, could be wrong though. Here's a pic of our blue cochin roo, Cotton at 8 weeks. He's definitely darker than your pretty girl! Where did you get her?

    Looks more Splash to me, but I certainly wouldn't call that a bad thing

    Here's a baby pic of Cotton. The crew is snoozing! He's the really grey one. The grey and yellow ones are my white cochin.

    She looks splash to me. I have 2 blue ones and they were darker as babies.

    I'm thinking she may turn out to be a splash. Cotton was all over dark grey from day one. I love my cochins, they're so pretty!!
