    Is there such a thing as a "Light Columbian"? Perhaps you mean Columbian(Silver Columbian) Cochin?

    The Light pattern as found in Light Brahman and Light Sussex while almost identical to Silver Columbian pattern there are some difference,

    Light Sussex are based on e^Wh/e^Wh Wheaten and Columbian restricted Silver, the Wheaten e allele will not allow the Back stippling found on Silver Columbian Wyandottes which are based on eb/eb and Columbian restricted Silver

    If you don't have access to more Silver Columbian Cochins, the the next best thing would be Silver Partridge Cochins, what colors do you have available to you?

    Depends on what the white is hiding, I think White Orps are recessive white
