    I have these mixed cochin chicks and curious as to what do you think the parents are.

    Please give me your opinion as to what you think the parents of these are. These were my first attempt at hatching and I am so happy with my barnyard mix.

    Those look like Lemon Blue Cochins to me. I could be wrong. Contact rarefeathersfarm - they breed the LB variety and could give you some pointers.

    Right- it looks like a crossing of buff and blue. If they don't have feathers on the middle toe then they are only 1/2 cochin. Maybe buff Orp roo over blue cochin hens, or vice versa. Very pretty- love that color [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thanks! I love the color too! I am going to be getting all the breeds seperated so that I don't have any mishaps in the future but I am happy these are here. I do some some buff orphington hens so maybe one of them is the momma and my blue roo is the daddy.
    Thanks
