I have two cochin bantams that are about 6 weeks old now. The breeder didn't tell me what kind of cochin bantams they are (black, white, mottled, etc.). They were yellow as chicks, so I figured they were buffs. Now though, they have more white than yellow, and they even have some black. Are they actually buffs, and are they just going to get the proper color when they get older? Or are they not buffs at all?
I'm attaching photos of them when they were chicks. and pictures of them now.
Thanks!

Thank you for your replies. I actually meant, what color type are they? Buff, white, black, mottled, etc.

Hmm... good question. 😕
I have a splash one who was blond as your's but his wings have more color and he's white with dark everywhere now.
I have millies but they were never so light.
Bet they will be really pretty though!

Thank you for your reply. I'll be happy with whatever they are. I was just curious because they don't look like what I was expecting.
