    This is Bean and she is a cochin pullet and I don't know what color to call her. I have her mom and she looks just like Bean. Her mom crossed with a black cochin rooster created more like her and the people that bought them asked what color she is and had no idea what to tell them. I only have experience with the plymouth rocks my grandma breeds and have just recently gotten into my own different breeds of chicken!

    Looks like a golden laced cochin, just more black than gold.

    Quote:Thank you! She is my favorite chicken! She is so friendly and quiet. Bean is gorgeous in her looks and personality! She just started laying so I will see what I get. She and my other cochin hens are in with a black cochin rooster but my EE rooster Kung pao escapes his run and is in with them most of the time now. Man can Pao fly!!

    She's not a brown red. She looks like she's somewhere between a gold laced and a bsl.
