    I got this Cochin pullet today. She has wing bands and according to her records she came out of a pair of black birds. A throwback of some sort?? They were calling her Porcelain...but I consider porcelain to be more of a blueish champagne color.

    It looks like a smutty light buff columbian, almost a quail pattern.

    Lol the guy breeds Splash, black, blue and white Cochins. He keeps records and said she came out of a pair of blacks...it's really odd. I'm just glad he decided to "Cull" her. [​IMG] I am going to put her with a blue roo and see what happens. Should be fun!

    She's a beauty! [​IMG] Did she come out of straight pure blacks or were they blacks from blue & black matings?

    Whatever color you call her, I think she's kind of interesting looking. Nice foot feathering, too.

    I got cochin packing peanuts in my Ideal order. I am dying to figure out what color they are. I didn't order them but I have been interested in the breed so we will see what happens with them.

    Beautiful bird Angie! Sometimes it doesn't matter what color it is as long as it's pretty!
