    I have a cochin that hatched all 5 of her eggs. When she went broody I collected eggs from my silkie group. When I looked at the baby chicks all of them has a single comb and 3 has five toes. We had my silkie roo with 2 silkie hens and silkie cochin mix and a cochin. I think cochin ate all the silkie eggs just so I would not have any.
    this is the roo
