    [FONT=verdana,geneva]Hi!! My name is Renee and I live in Northeast Alabama near Huntsville, Alabama. We have a small place with chickens, turkeys, a few goats and a couple of dogs. I joined BYC because I love my chickens. My hubby wanted turkeys--I thought he was nuts!! I never would have expected to enjoy my turkeys as much as I have. The bourbon reds and royal palms are my favorite while he likes the Bronze the best. I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. I really enjoy taking them!![/FONT]
    Here are some pictures of my Bantam Cochins. I currently have 2 separate pens of these wonderful little bantams. One is a pen of BBS with a Splash roo, 2 blue hens and a mottled frizzle hens and in the other pen I have a pair of Columbian Cochins with a couple of Birchen hens. My birchens produce columbian chicks and I was told that if I put my Columbian roo in with my hens that I would not only get both color chicks but it would improve the silver lacing on my hens. I have been doing this but with the birchen it takes a while for the silver lacing to develop therefore I am still waiting to see the results. At least I am getting a lot more columbian chicks this way!!!

    One of my favorites are my BBS Polish. They are soo goofy looking and the chicks are just adorable. A lot of people say the Polish are too flighty. Mine are not--they will come to me and follow me around just like the cochins. The polish get scared easier and faster then the cochins but I think it is because they have problems seeing. They are very comical birds. I will add chick pics when I get some more hatched! I always forget to take them while they are little.
