Hello everyone,
In my coupe is a Giant Blue Cochin Hen, Giant Black
Cochin Hen, Giant White Cochin Frizzle, Another Giant Cochin, who appears to be a Barred Rock Hen, egg was sold on eBay as White Cochin Frizzle...surprise!! The Roo is a Giant Black Cochin.

I have hatched a few Cochins...What is this color called? I think I may have a Male, what do you think? Baby needs a name...can you suggest a name. I already have a Rooster named Splash.

Here's the pics.
You can see the Waddles forming here.

It's splash, I would say. At least it looks splash. Cuckoo is a barred pattern. Not sure how you got that color from what you listed, though. You'd have to have bred a blue to blue or a blue to a splash or splash to splash to get a splash. Maybe you have a mottled gene in there that isn't apparent?

pips&peeps :

Your black roo is probably really blue, and that is how you ended up with a splash bird.

Now, why didnt I think of that, Jean? DUH, LOL. Yes, it's true that some extremely dark blues appear black, so I bet that's it.​
