The birth of dozens of Mechelen Bresse chicks is what started the Cosmopolitan Chicken Project. Among the off-white chicks, Vanmechelen spotted one that’s blue - reason enough to name this entire generation ‘First Generation Blue’. During the first show in Hasselt, on the day of a solar eclipse on 11 August 1999, a black rooster was born.
