    Just wondering if anyone can tell me what cochins to breed to get lemon blue. I am assuming blue and buff, but want to be sure.

    To get the real lemon blue you will need brownred and blue. Cross those, keep the best blue offspring and keep mating back to brown red until you get the right pattern, should only take a few generations.
