    Raising chicks on grass, no brooder!

    (Edit: I did find 1 other thread about brooding outside) I can't seem to find many articles on this topic in the forum anywhere so I thought I would share my experience! This may be a no brainer for some but with everything and everyone everywhere talking about raising in brooder boxes this was...

    Patridge cochin bantam?

    My new chick's came today!! 4 assorted silkies and 4 assorted cochin bantams. This little guy/girl is quite a bit lighter than the other patridge I've identified. Do they vary that much in shade?

    Preserving "lacing" in breeding

    Hey guys! I want to pick the brains of some of you all. :) I ordered eggs online through a supplier in AL and ultimately thanks to package handling I'm $250+ later and I have a single golden laced cochin chick. I'm working with USPS on the claim regarding handling issues, but that's neither...

    Red cochin bantam wattle at 3 weeks old??

    I'm pretty sure this is a roo. Out of all 4 of my cochin bantams this is the only one that has developed a wattle and has a larger comb! Is it common for bantams to start showing those signs this early? (3 weeks old) First 2 pics is our suspected roo. The others I think are hens. Maybe too...

    Is it important to break a broody hen?

    This is the first time I’ve encountered a broody hen. Her name is FooFoo and she’s a Cochin. About 14 months old. Right now, she’s sitting on golf balls. We don’t have any fertilized eggs. I’ve read about it being important to “break” broodiness, but as a natural process in the chicken’s...

    What Color Chick is This Cochin?

    This is a little Cochin chick I got today. The dad is lavender and looks to have the isabella partridge markings. Mom looks to be a silver laced cochin (maybe silver partridge?

    Bantam babies

    This is my first post, but I feel like I've been part of many threads, some from like 10 years ago or more, lol. I'm not new to chickens, but I am new to bantams! I finally talked my SO into helping me construct a little Bantam Village so that they can be more protected than our free rangers...

    5 wk old Mottled Cochin Bantam, Pullet??

    We have 4 Cochin chicks total, all 5 wks old, two mottled and a blue and a lavender. The blue is 100% a roo, biggest comb I’ve ever seen on a 5 wk old, and the lavender I suspect might be a roo too but has a significantly smaller comb than the blue. The 2 mottled (identical to the one in the...
