    My birds all free range, standards, bantams, everyone together. My only roosters are bantam cochins and OEGB's. I've got eggs hatching under a broody tonight, all bantam cochin eggs. I am hoping that some of the chicks will be pure cochins. The first chick out, however, is obviously not pure cochin, and must be an OEGB/cochin mix. Anyone have pictures of adult birds of this particular cross? It's a funny-looking baby tonight... I'll have pictures after it fluffs up and the broody is finished hatching her clutch.

    Thanks!

    I've never encountered that kind of mix! Though, I do have a Japanese, Cochin mix. I'll post pictures!
    This is her, the mix. A cross between a Black Tailed White Japanese, and a Black Cochin.

    Wow, that's fun coloring from that cross. Makes me really curious about mine.

    My OEGB roos are silver duckwing and blue wheaten. My cochin hens are a black frizzle and a blue. Now I'm really curious to see what the babies will look like!

    And it looks like I have a second mixed baby. Still 8 eggs to go, hoping for pure cochins here...
