    Thanks. I too know nothing about Cochins. This is the first batch I have had with multiple colors. I have one black bantam cochin hen that I hatched several years ago and I love her but all these colors and what is correct is baffling me. We started with 4H pullet chain birds and so I do have a fondness for reds but we have/have had true Araucana, Mottled Houdan, Salmon Favorelle, Silver Gray Dorking, Silver Phoenix, Sumatra and silkies. So, those breeds had a narrow range of acceptable colors and were not so hard to figure out. Cochins [​IMG]. They are really making me crazy. I need to go back to something simpler with the colors. But, having a friend who is a breeder and enabler and when you purchase eggs she just throws in a few more. [​IMG] Who can say no? [​IMG]

    I hatched two broody batches this year. 1st batch is 6 out of 8 are cockerels. [​IMG] Those are the ones above.

    So I HAD to hatch another batch in hopes of more girls. They are 6 weeks and I think I have only 2 out of 6 that are cockerel. [​IMG]

    That's duck math. It starts at multiplication then goes logarithmic really fast.

    I finally found the subtract button...sent off a dozen 3 year old production reds [​IMG]
