    My neighbor has a beautiful Cochin rooster which she bred with a Rhode Island Red hen. They are the sweetest and most adorable little chicks I've ever seen! My avatar is a picture of them. I'm so curious as to what they are going to look like as adults! Any guesses or opinions?

    I don't have an actual pic of the mother and father. I can go get one, but for now, here are some photos that I found online that closely resemble them.

    This is what the father looks like, though more gray.

    Here's what the mom looks like

    Thank you! I'm so excited to see how they turn out.

    Mom is not a Rhode Island Red. Sure, she is red but not a RIR at all. Looks more like a skinny New Hampshire When you say the rooster is "gray" I will assume that is blue. If he is indeed blue then half the chicks will be blue and half will be black.
