    When I went to get 10 more Brahma chicks from a friend, she had also received a large batch of assorted Cochins. She told my son he could pick one out to keep for himself, so he picked out this little one. At first it had a black head and back, gray wings and white underside. It is 3 wks old today (my son named it Sneaky Pie) and it's little feathers are coming in brown and black:

    I don't know a thing about Cochins, so I don't know what to expect. At first I thought it might be a Black, at first it looked an awful lot like it from a catalog picture I compared it to. But would a Black have brown coming in first? Or are we looking at another color entirely? It doesn't really matter, my son loves it anyway. I'd just like to know what to expect... Thanks!

    Maybe it's a partridge?
