    so yesterday i found out that my little 6 month-old bantam cochin, Sugar, is a "red-brown" - all along I had thought she was a faulty birchen or something!

    apparently the color isn't too common?

    what do you think of my little girl?

    I knew some folks were working on brown Red cochins but was not aware of how it was going. She does have decent brown red color and pattern. I do like the gypsy face on her as a birchen / brown red should have, at least in other breeds.

    thanks everyone!

    the funny thing is that i hatched her from an egg i got from a friend and he only said "it's a bantam cochin, probably birchen" - he doesn't always know the treasures he has in his breeding pens [​IMG]

    i'll have to tell him the good news... he hatched a few more and they're all girls who look like mine so he must have a good breeding pair!

    the dark color to the face and comb, bordering on black looks kind of purpleish, the earlobes will turn a purple color when in production. this is a common trait with birchen based (ER) birds.

    I like the tiltle under your user name, is that easier than saying Laced Cochins?

    Gypsy face - I figured it must have to do with the purplish tones - Thanx!

    PgMlCo - I changed it a couple of months ago, and you're the first to comment on it!! No one's even asked what it means!
