    I am so glad we don't have a store around us that has baby chicks in a bin. Egad! I would have a million of them![​IMG]

    I think your Cochin chicks are black, maybe carrying blue? But I am no expert. I can only tell you what I have had here and what it has turned out like and that is what my black chicks looked like out of blues.
    I'm not as good with the Silkies since this is my first year with them but yours looks like a blue or splash. My blacks are black but I still yet have to discover if the ones that look like yours are blue or splash. I knew I should have marked them when they hatched out! The eggs clearly told me but I got caught up in the moment![​IMG]

    The cochin babies look like the blue cochins I just got. You really have a store where you can go buy a variety of chicks...how awesome....I am jealous! I would definitely get myself into trouble....BIG trouble! LOL!

    Oooohhhhhh! Wookitdacutewittlefeatherbums!!!

    I think the silkie is blue. Not sure on the cochins...I'm thinking they'll end up being black, but not sure.

    I need a store around here like that...like I need a hole in the head.
