This stately, gentle variety is very rare and extremely beautiful. The bluish-slate color is striking in Cochins.
THE COLOR BLUE: A unique genetic feature of this breed is the constant recurrence in the offspring of not only all blue chicks, but also the black, white, and black-white colors used in the original matings many generations ago to produce these blue birds. All of these chicks carry the blue genes and when mated black on white or with other blues in turn produce many blue offspring. In our breeding flocks, however, only blue males of the finest color are used.
Approximately 50% of the baby chicks will be all blue. The other 50% will be black, white, and black/white combinations.

Loved herI received a blue cochin as a free chick in one of my orders and I absolutely adored her. The description on this breed is very accurate in my experience.
Big handsome guyI too received a blue cochin rooster as my "rare breed chick" with my order of laying hens (that also came with two unexpected roosters..lol).
Before I knew he was a rooster I was calling "her" Grace, she was always the most friendly of all of the chicks. But when she started crowing I could no longer deny that she was a he, and I changed his name to Grant (Cary Grant) because he is incredibly handsome.
He comes to me, the other roosters just tell crow at me when I don't do what they want. I'm thinking of separating him out of the smaller chickens and getting him his own family of hens this year. I hope the hens are as calm and as beautiful as he is.
