i was thinking of placing an order with them, and checked here for a recent review thread. i happened upon this one.
i think those are some beautiful cochins!
i am not into chickens for showing or perfection, just for fun and eggs really. they keep me busy and happy. so, i don't care so much about "show quality" or traits that would disqualify or anything like that. plus, i'm not breeding for anything either. i think i will take my chances with a hatchery. i have NEVER ordered chicks. i've always gotten them from people at like chickenstock, etc. i'm a little nervous :-)
i just want some pretty birds to replace the ones i lost :-( and some that lay funky or different eggs from just the plain white or light brown.
