    He's typical of what you might get if you coss a blue and a buff. Maybe both cochins, or maybe one was an orp. It's not a standard color, but if you aren't using him to breed to standard, it doesn't matter. I love the mixed color cochins.

    X3 and looks lemon blue, not buff blue. Pretty bird, but I wouldnt use him for breeding, not shaped well for a cochin. He is a pretty color tho!

    I crossed him with a barred cochion and the cluch was all blues no other colors
    he's not really nice but his ladies lay a lot of eggs thats all I'm going to get out of him so be it lol
    I'd rather not drop mutts. thank you all so much
