Anyone care to take a stab at it? What color do you think s/he'll be? ETA: 2-3 weeks old.
Green!! if you dye it!!!
I couldn't resist!!
Quote: Hey, my kiddos each got a dyed chick for Easter from relatives...green would fit right in with the blue chick and pink chick wandering around the brooder....
Black, possibly blue, possibly mottle. What colour are the parents?
Looks like Mottled.
Thank you for your replies! I would so love a mottled! I'm unaware of her/his parentage as s/he came from the bantam bin at my local TSC.
Looks like a mottled.
mottle or mottle carrier... see the black dot on top of the head..
Looks like mottled it is! Thank you all for your help. Now...the wait is on to see what gender it is. Either is just fine with me, I think cochin roos are just beautiful! Is it advisable to breed a bird that came from a hatchery? I know that often they aren't the best specimens of the breed. I would love to have a girlfriend or two for him (if a roo) or a boyfriend for her (if a pullet), but don't want to continue a bad type or characteristic. Probably just a wait-and-see kind of situation, huh?
Well, I plan to breed my hatchery bantam cochins. They're beautiful to me, and lots of people around me want them. No one in my little corner of the boondocks has or cares about show chickens. I will always be sure to tell people that they are just hatchery quality, so no one gets the idea that they're marvelous specimens.
