    Iam new to this forum and new to the whole cochin chicken world. I have many questions. I have two blue hens, a splash hen, a blue rooster,six chicks 3 wks tomorrow(4 yellow,1blackish,1grey)and 17 eggs under one of my blues. Now I have learned not to count my chickens before they hatch........and if mama hen doesnt want the unhatched egg i need not help her along.LOL I smelled egg for several days before i could shake it. My question is how do you get the diff. colors in this breed. I know a little about the blues but how do you get partridge,silverlaced etc. thank you for any assiatance .
