I hatched some large fowl blue cochin eggs and got 1 splash, 2 black, and 2 blue. The blue turned out to be a pullet and a cockerel. The pullet is very nice but the cockerel looks like a blue red pyle. Is this typical of the breed or did I just get a poor specimen? I really don't like the red in the wings and plan to breed the pullet to the black cockerel.

There are relativley few breeders of very good standard cochin around i suggest the poultry press for the top notch people.
check the back and wing shoulders for a tinge of brown, maybe she is blue red too the brown is harder to see. I have blue red oeg type and the hens are all over the place in color.
