Hello all, this is Clementine, my very first Cochin. Since she is my first, I am not too familiar with them, and how they feather in and such. She was sold to us as a Black Cochin - but she is certainly not feathering in black! As she is getting older, she is getting lighter and developing a lot of white that she didn't have before. This seems strange to me, with each day that passes (and the lighter she gets) I am starting to think she is a different color. The top of her head is turning white, and her chest is feathering in very white/light gray color. I don't care too much what color she ends up being - she is such a love! - I am just curious. Any help would be appreciated Thanks in advance! Here she is then....and now.
