    Here is Molly and Henry. She is about one and he is about e months.

    Here is Molly with her babies. THe black and white ones are pure black cochins, and the yellow-chipmunky one is black x buff cochin. The brown ones are partridge rock x black cochin.

    [​IMG]

    Here is a better one of the black x buff baby, on the left.

    This is Cassie, she is still a pullet, you can tell by her longer neck and her legs are not as feathered.

    I have columbians

    and here are some mottleds that are finding new homes this weekend.
    [​IMG]
    "Black and white" cochins are either mottled or barred. This pattern gene when mixed with a non-patterned bird like a black will give you some blacks but mostly mixed birds. Those black birds will still throw mixes. ... so, unless you just want a pretty barnyard mix, I would choose which variety you like best.
