Well most of the extra random chickens have been sold and most of the cochins are now seperated by color.

Pen 1: 2 Mille Fleur roosters, 1 Calico hen, 1 Mille Fleur hen, 1 too-dark Mille Fleur hen, 1 black mottled hen and 1 dark brown hen with gold penciling on the breast.
Pen 2: 1 Splash rooster, 1 black hen, 2 splash hens
Pen 3: This will be the Barred pen. Right now we've only got 1 rooster and one chick that is promising to be a pullet. The rooster isn't correct in his color but he's just too pretty to get rid of so we're going to see what we get from him.

Our black hen is sitting on eggs from Roslyn Pickens. Colors include: blue/black mottled, calico/mille fleur, blue calico/mille fleur, lavender/calico, and splash. Roslyn has really nice cochins and we're excited to add the chicks to our flock.

Now I'm off to update the rest of the site.
 
 
We have decided to pretty much focus only on our Bantam Cochins. We will still have a few other chickens running around but not many. Right now we are working on selling out of most of our chickens that do not fit with our breeding plans. Contact us to see what we have available. 

We have lots of cochin chicks available! 

We have three cochin hens sitting on nests right now. Two are due this week and the third is due in two weeks.

We've had a problem with chicken snakes stealing eggs this year. We've already killed 4 in the last month!
 
 
The babies are hatching like crazy! They're due today and as of this morning we already have 6 hatched, 1 pipped, and 1 zipped. I'll be at work until 5:00 so it'll be a total surprise as to how many there are when I get home. How fun!
The babies that have already hatched are: 2 Ameracaunas, 1 Easter Egger, 1 Blue laced red Wyndotte and 2 bantam cochins.
 
 
Well it turns out that the Wheaten Maran egg was mis-marked because the chick is black not yellow. So definately NOT wheaten maran. I contacted the lady I bought the eggs from to see if she has any ideas.
 
 
Well so far we've had 16 babies hatch, 3 didn't make it so we're at 13 babies. There are still 17 eggs in the incubator and they weren't actually due until today so I'm going to wait until probably Saturday before taking them out. I've got more eggs that need to go in the incubator asap so I can't wait too long.
So far we've got:
2, maybe 3, Golden Lakenvelder
6ish Bantam Cochins
1 Wheaten Maran (woot woot)
1 Cuckoo Maran
2 Black Sexlink (1 boy, 1 girl)
1 Blue Laced Red Wynadotte
There's also 1 blue giant cochin that has really been fightin. He was not doing good at all but has managed to really pull through. He couldn't move, couldn't hold his head up, wasn't opening his eyes, basically just laying there barely breathing. I was sure he wouldn't make it. It took him all day yesterday but he's finally holding his head up and attempting to cheep. He's trying to walk but his legs aren't quite functioning like they should so he kin
 
 
So the adventure begins! This will be my first ever attempt at a blog. Short and sweet today.

We've got babies hatching! Several different breeds. I'll be putting up what hatches and let y'all know which we're keeping for ourselves and what we will sell.
