    Hey guys, I have to smile when I share this picture. It is not the greatest pic, but the "foster mom" is a Frizzle Cochin, the genetic parents of little Emily are a Cloe, standard EE, and Scooter a Bantam Cochin.
    I'll eventually add more pictures, right now this is the only one we have of her, she has her moms dark colored feet but the outside toe is lighter with the cochin fuzz down her legs. Black eyes, a bit of gray under chin, on the butt, little on her wings.
    I have never seen a EE chick so I'm not sure to compare the chick colors.
    Right now my happiness is that a chick hatched alive, sweet and has a "round" rump and tail- like the cochins seem to have.
    So here is Emily and "mom"!

    Sounds like an interesting combination. (I am old so I can't really make out her features from the pic above.)

    Would love to see more photos of Emily, I'm not sure I've ever seen an EE/cochin mix. That would be cool.
