    I have silkie and giant cochin crosses. The chicks look like silkies - black skin, 5 toes and bearded but are the size of cochins. I have hatched 4 just to see what they would look like. I have 1 dark gray hen, 1 black hen 1 blue rooster and this guy. I have included pics of all of them but the first one I don't know what color to call him?

    What color is he:

    Second rooster I thought was blue is also getting the brownish color on him too!

    Looks dark blue (evidenced by the lacing) with red leakage.

    Do they really call it "red leakage"?
