    We just got our first Cochin pullet and we just love her. She’s so fluffy and sweet. Can anyone tell us what color she is?

    Possibly Lemon Cuckoo or a mixed variety.

    Lemon cuckoos are supposed to be all buff? Definitely cuckoo something.. My guess would have to be mix. Are you able to contact whoever you got her from and ask them?

    B4EC6FED-BA62-427F-A5F7-157F1C2F1FDE.jpeg They told me that she was purebred. Does this mean that we can’t use her for my daughter’s 4-H show project? She’s already in love with her. Her name is Coco

    She is a Crele. Not a APA recognized pattern so she can't be shown in all shows. Very uncommon pattern in Cochins, you've got a real find there.

    She's not a crele.
    Crele is barred duckwing.
    She is a mixed pattern.
    Most likely a pure cochin just not a pure pattern/color.
