    I do believe she is a pure bred Cochin bantam but I think the breeder experimented with some different colors. Maybe a lemon blue mixed with a brown red?

    So that you know,,
    Lemon Blues come from Brown Red so all Lemon Blues are "mixed" with Brown Reds...

    Basically Brown Red bred to Blue will give you Brown Red and Lemon Blue offspring.

    To the OP,
    Your hen is a Lemon Blue.
