    What color combinations would I get if I had a pen with serveral different colors of Cochins? I love Cochins, but cannot pick one color. I'd like a hen of every color except Buff, and a Splash roo to cover them. I know the possibilities are endless, but has anyone even done this, and if you have what did you get out of them? Thanks!

    A lot of folks mix colours; the more you do so, the less predictable unless you have a plan and a bit of genetics knowledge. If you are mixing for your own enjoyment--go for it! If you plan to sell chicks or hatching eggs, be very explicit to your purchasers that your birds are not bred to standard, and are from mixed pens.

    Sonoran Silkies - Of course! [​IMG] I'd just really love to see if anyone got any really wacky colors, and if they turned out nicely, how to possibly get that color again. But mostly, I love cochins, and chicken colors, and would like to see some!
