    We had hatched 3 cochin/frizzles that are now 8 weeks old- the coloring changed a lot from what we were expecting any thoughts

    Parents-

    Babies-

    The 2 frizzles are like this one with the lacing- which neither parent has- daddy is red and momma is all black

    3rd baby cochin we thought was all black is now showing golden coloring on her saddle
    And chest

    The apparent lacing has got me big time- the parents we had gotten from a local feed store when they got their arrivals in- supposed to be just red and black - not crossed

    So with how these babies came out- this means there's a cross in a parent somewhere?
