    seedRandom(Math.floor(time), timeless = true);
    c1=thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Color Control")("Color");
    c2=thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Color Control 2")("Color");
    c3=thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Color Control 3")("Color");
    c4=thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Color Control 4")("Color");
    c5=thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Color Control 5")("Color");
    c6=thisComp.layer("Null 1").effect("Color Control 6")("Color");

    Something like this should work:

    seedRandom(Math.floor(time), timeless = true);
    c1=thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Color Control”)(“Color”);
    c2=thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Color Control 2”)(“Color”);
    c3=thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Color Control 3”)(“Color”);
    c4=thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Color Control 4”)(“Color”);
    c5=thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Color Control 5”)(“Color”);
    c6=thisComp.layer(“Null 1”).effect(“Color Control 6”)(“Color”);
    idx = Math.floor(random(6))+1;
    eval(“c” + idx)
