    I just hatched 4 lemon-blue cochin eggs and wanted opinions on whether you think they'll be true to color when grown. I know that's hard to say, but I thought I would at least get some opinions for those that know the lemon-blue genes.

    Cute!!! The first two look like they have the potential to be, but the last two look darker.

    I know equibling is working on those, too, I believe so I'm sure she'll know more.

    I'm not sure about this breed inparticular, but the blue's that I've hatched in the Jersey Giants and the Blue Orps. are usually grey as chicks. The light gray/silver usually turns out to be splash if that's possible with this breed. They sure are a bunch of cuties! [​IMG]
