Lemon Blue Splash Cochins?? Anyone?

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by Rare Feathers Farm, Jun 10, 2008.

  1. I saw some GORGEOUS Lemon-blue cochins on eBay & I bid on them...and forgot about it. Next thing I know, I get an email this morning, telling me I won!

    Does anyone have these? I realize that they are not a recognized color as far as showing, but I don't show so I don't care. [​IMG] I just thought they were pretty! [​IMG]

    I've never seen that breed before, but I finally found a pic online. Those are a mighty pretty breed of bird! Do they look like these?

    I wouldn't care what color is accepted, I would want them all. Post a pic when you grow them up!!
     
  9. Okay...here is a picture I shamelessly stole from the auction listing:

    She did mention these are the juvenile pics but these eggs are from the adult birds...
    And another pic of a young pair:

    This is the same lady I bought my original Golden Laced cochins from. She packs them VERY well, always includes LOTS of extras & I highly recommend her! I got 7 to hatch out of the 17 she sent me--but that was with wild temps in my darn LG bator!

    I have ordered eggs twice from a guy on ebay. And this is what I've hatched, the first one is a dark "lemon Blue"
    [​IMG]
    And this is a light "lemon blue" These were taken over a month ago, they are getting more beautiful every day!

    I also have a few others, they are beautiful and I will use them in my breeding program for the lemon blues. I've been told the color is still not set so you will variation on the colors they used.
