I dont need the birds and bees talk. lol. I have buff, white/lemon, blue. and mottled(he passed) bantam cochins and somehow got barred babies from that group. Would you say I got them from Mottled roo/blue hen?? I gave some hatching eggs(cochins & others) to my step dad, and I could tell they were cochins right from the start(the leg fluff gave it away)but as they got older and their feathers started coming in , I noticed that they were Barred...I Will add pics later but I was wondering if anyone could confirm my theory or give me a clue as to how that happened...I would appreciate it;)

Barring is dominant so at least one of your birds will be showing it or masking it.
The white/lemon is the most likely to be masking barring, & barring canbe difficult to sê on blue or buff hens.
