    I can't get the picture on here right now but if you follow the link it will bring you to the picture...it's the little cochin in the middle of the crowd. Let me know what you think?

    I believe the parents to this bird were both black and I don't think you can get a blue from two blacks can you? I think I read that before in a thread that was here. It just looks blue to me! I was wondering.

    I'm
    going to try to get some better pictures...it even looks more blue this afternoon.

    The blacks ones with cream colored bottoms look exactly like my baby blue cochins.
