We just had a chick to hatch out today that was under an Araucana hen and realized that DD had put the blue egg from her Brahma mix in the batch! The chick is feather legged and the Brahma hen is in with our white bantam Cochin roo! I wondered why that egg was a bit smaller since the Araucanas eggs are larger but thought one of the young pullets might have slipped one in the batch. I was too silly to take it out. It is an adorable chick with black top and white underneath. The Brahma hen is a blue with gold hackle and the Cochin roo being white we just can't wait to see what this mix is going to bring about. It seems to already have a large size comb so I am sure I have yet another roo on my hands! Has anyone crossed up a Brahma and a bantam Cochin?
