    I bought 25 giant cochins which were supposed to be mixed. So far-- at about 3 months, they're all white. They have different shades of beak & foot colour-- some are a very light yellow, some orange, and some have blue or green eyes. Are they going to get different feather colours at some point?

    Gee, I'm not sure since they are 3 months old.
    All my standards started out the color they were going to be. Yellows turned to white but the blacks stayed black and the blues stayed blue.
    At 3 months old I think you have your color but could be wrong. Maybe the color change fairy hits late on some bloodlines but I have never personally had it to happen.
    Good luck![​IMG]
