I have two bantam cochin pullets, one black and one lavender splash. I got them from a respected breeder around these parts. Today I got my first little bantam egg! It's so cute! It's a creamy white egg and I'm thrilled because I wanted them to be white since all my other girls lay brown or blue green so far. I have looked at a lot of cochin bantam eggs and have noticed about half are white, half are brown. Why is this? Is a hen that lays one color not pure bred? Or is it acceptable in the breed standard for them to lay either color? I won't be showing them and I think they're cute, so I don't care if they're purebred or not, mostly just curious.
