    This first is one that I thought would be gold laced (Never had a gold laced)

    This is the gold and what I thought was black

    The black with gold coming in

    This I think is a blue barred frizzled cochin. The sunlight really washed out the white barred but if you look close it's there and I'm pretty sure he is blue.

    The chicks came from hens and a roo colored Buff, Barred, Black, Gold Laced, Sliver Laced and Red. I never considered that they would be a color cross. I noticed that the seller has blue cochins as well. Is there such a thing as blue barred?

    The barred one looks like a normal black barred. btw - "Self Blue" is Lavender, so no, not a self blue. [​IMG]

    The first looks like a Buff or Wheaten.

    Second is black or a cross, telling by the leaking coloration.
