So hatchery choice is like a surprise to see what it turns out to be?
That will be fun!
Re my two larger black cochins with some of their poufy tail feathers missing ~ I saw Tweedy pick a feather of one of them again today because she was in Tweedy's way of a food bowl, but then I saw each of them peck each other's poufs! They are very competitive, but that seems weird that they pull out a feather instead of pecking on the head. Must be pouf-envy.
Now don't forget me if you decide to rehome the other two girls. I want them please! I'll pair them back to my Olive Eggers since I have only hatched roos! Of course the only two girls were an accident! Go figure!
