I bought my chicks from a local feed store I got what they sold as blue cochins, but they are now almost totally feathered and they really look more white than blue? Do they change later or did I just get unlucky picks?

We have 8 1/2 week old blue and black mottled bantam cochins. They were all white, yellow and black for the longest time. Cute little things. They've been feathering out and we're seeing daily changes in their markings. Here's a shot of them from a few weeks ago, you can see how they are filling in dark in the back.


Again a shot taken just a few days ago. You can see one of our roosters definitely will be a dark mottled - a real sweetheart guy... And you can see how the others are growing...




Enjoy your babies - to me ours are the most precious gift.


The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time
Any fool can do it
There ain't nothing to it
Nobody knows how we got to
The top of the hill
But since we're on our way down
We might as well enjoy the ride

Give them some time to grow and mature. Heck I started out as an ash blond kid, and at about 10 starting going brown... LOL
If you get white ones maybe you'll have one as regal as Anthony here...
