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 . 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. Who can say no?
