    Newbie question here, not even sure this is the right forum, but here we go...I put a few of my white cochin hen's eggs in the bator with my ordered polish eggs to act as a "control group." She is in with a black cochin roo. What should I expect from the chicks?

    Thanks!!!

    I think you get blue, but I'm not sure.

    Quote:You would get blue if it was a Black with a Splash, but since black is generally dominant I would guess that they would be black.

    You could always get a surprise, though. [​IMG]

    Good luck!
