    this spring my nannys(step grandma) cousin is going to get me 2-3 of every color cochin bantam mcmurray hatchery has. all except frizzle.
    anyway i was wondering if any of you would be willing to give me some ideas on what color cochin bantam i could try to make.
    for those of you who dont know what colors i am getting here they are... http://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/category/cochin_bantams.html
    i would like to make a color that is not yet recognized yet.
    i know kind of a stupid question to ask but i thought i could make this my project bird for the spring.
    thanks.
    cole.

    Well you could make a color that's not recognized yet, but probably not one that hasn't already been started. But maybe you could do, Blue Barred, Blue Mottled, or Blue Partridge.

    Yep, I think all three have already been started, the blue mottled is just the most common of the three.

    There is a couple threads on how to make blue laced red or blue laced gold. I'd try that if you're ready for a commitment.

    They have Bantam Crele Cochins in the UK - not sure if anyone is working on them over here. Best of luck with your project, just remember to always breed for Cochin Type first, color is second.
