    I was thinking about breeding a barred rock roo with a white cochin and I was wondering what would be the outcome.

    All barred chicks, possibly with some feathered feet. The sire will give barring to all the chicks is my understanding

    I have a standard white cochin mixed I believe because she lays green eggs. She looks just like a white cochin though. I crossed her with my BR Roo. The chick has some barring and is a blue color. Heres a picture. Only a week old.

    This is a good question, I remember hearing the white washed out the other colors. I have some white cochins as well, (none of my birds lay blue eggs lol) I thought about breeding my white cochin hen with my red frizzle roo to mabye get some red cochins?

    What can we breed with White?!

    Thanks
