    Well, Lola, my "blue" cochin is 5 weeks old today.. and a friend of mine whose brother raised pekins (he refuses to say cochin.. he's a "purist") pointed out to me that she is not, in fact, a blue cochin... she is a lavender cochin! She is getting to be so pretty!! And has started to assert herself in the pecking order. It's so fun to watch the goings on of the brood! I have heard people talk about watching "chicken TV", and it really is more entertaining than some of the drivel on TV these days!

    Do you know what color her parents were as this is the only way to know if she is blue or self blue for sure.

    That was about a week ago.. the color quality is horrible becasue I took it with my cell phone. I have no idea who the parent were.. she actually came from my local feed store. I will try and get a better pic in the morning, they are all "down" for the night. I think the other chicks know I have been favoring her. I hope they arn't the jealous type, LOL
