    I'm new to keeping chickens, and I was wondering, what color eggs do Cochins lay? Thanks!

    My friend has a Cochin that lays tinted to light tan eggs. That is when she is actually laying and not broody on the nest which is most of the time.

    Since you are new to this whole deal here is a link to a breed chart I have found helpful for breed information:
