    For your consideration I have 12 plus a few extras in case of breakage of ASSORTED purebred Cochin Bantam eggs from our colorful pens listed below. ALL DEPENDS ON WHO IS LAYING THE DAY I GATHER ON WHAT EGGS YOU WILL GET. All are laying pretty good right now, but you know cochins they can go broody at the drop of a hat LOL. Cochin Bantams are the most sweetest docile birds and I have SEVERAL that are just total pets LOL. They are my all time favorite bantam! They are great layers, but prefer being broody or taking care of chicks. We use them and Sizzles to hatch all of our Peafowl and Turkey eggs. Great as pets or 4-H poultry projects as well! They love getting all the attention! Shipping for a doz is $13.00. We take Paypal and USPS money orders and ship eggs on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. We are always happy to work with you on a shipping date you prefer and any special orders you might want. We will gladly make special orders from just the varieties you want, but price may be a little higher than a mix. Contact me and I will gladly see if I can help you get the color variety you like. We love our little colorful Cochins and know you will also

    At Lucky Pickens Farm we’ve been raising poultry for over 50 years and strive to raise high quality birds for show or just for pets. All birds on our farm are blood tested Pullorum/Typhoid clean. We see that our birds are kept happy and healthy by giving them the very best feed and TLC daily! We strive to breed to the Standard of Perfection on each breed we raise and all are purebred and kept in individual breeding pens away from predators. We feed a high quality, high protein all natural game bird breeder pellet with vitamins and minerals in the water daily to insure high fertility. We also feed a little scratch grains, Calf Manna and veggie treats from the garden daily. We LOVE spoiling our birds and it shows!

    Below is a little info about each of our breeding pens so you have some idea of what color you might get. You can see more photos of them on our website below and are always happy to answer any questions about them. If you see some you like feel free to email us about special orders. We also raise Splash/Blue Silkies, Sizzles and heritage RI Reds in standard and bantams. Selling hatching eggs from all of them also. Contact [email protected] for more details.

    Our Cochin Bantam pens includes …

    1. ** 1 - F4 Calico/Mille Fleur rooster "Winchester" with 2- F3 Calico/Mille Fleur Cochin Bantam hens, 1- F1 Calico hen. My rooster and one of the Mille hens came from Lynne Wingshadows Hacienda in CA. She has been working on the Mille Fleur variety in Cochin Bantams for several years and has some awesome birds. I bought the other 2 hens who are hatched from her eggs. The other hen is one that I have bred and raised from my Buff Columbian/Mottled breeding. **UPDATE** I have now added 2 Calico/Mille roosters and 5 Calico/Mille laying hens to this pen. I have hatched and raised all from my breeders, a few are even Chocolate Calico and all are just Gorgeous! Will be posting pictures later. (Egg code CMC)

    2. ** Blue Mottled rooster "Remington" who is out of Winchester above and a Blue Mottled hen. He is just beautiful nice dark blue with LOTS of Mottling! With him is 1 Black Mottled Frizzled hen and 1 Blue Mottled Frizzle hen, both are from Winchester also. All are really nice type and chicks should be really nicely mottled with most being Blue Mottled. (Egg code MTFC)

    3. ** Black Mottled rooster "Oreo" with 3 of my Black show quality hens. With them I hope to improve type on my mottled line. (Egg code MTC)


    4. ** Splash Frizzled rooster "Fonzi" with 1 Black and 2 Splash hens. All have really nice full round buns and the Black hens are from a show strain of Bob Rhodes. Chicks from this pen will be Blue and Splash only and some will be frizzled as well. I've been hatching some really nice colorful splash and blue show quality birds from them all. (Egg code SFC)

    5. ** Lemon Blue rooster "Prince" is just gorgeous with a hint of metallic lemon gold in his hackles. Which is just beautiful in contrast to his dark blue base coloring with lighter splash coloring in his wings and tail. With him is a Lemon Splash hen "Goldilocks" with her golden coloring in her hackles against the lighter splash coloring it is easy to see how she gets her name! Also in the pen are 2 Blue show quality hens. All are great type with very full buns, with a very unique coloring which so far the chicks I have hatched from them look just like them. They are all just beautiful!. (Egg code LBC)

    6. ** Breeding trio of nice dark mahogany Red Cochin Bantams, "Rusty, Lucy & Ethel" I am raising a few chicks now from them and all have heavy feathered feet, nice type and wonderful dark red mahogany color like my RI Reds. I just love them! (Egg code RC)

    7. ** Breeding pair of Silver Laced. "Bruce Almighty" and "Lacie" are two of my favorite birds and are throwing some really nice clean laced chicks. Just added 4 more pullets and they should be laying anytime, can't wait! (Egg code SLC)

    8. ** 2 Buff Barred roosters with 4 Buff Barred hens. Really love these, they are more lemon colored then buff easy to see why they are called Lemon Cuckoos overseas. (Egg code BBC)

    9. ** Black split to Lavender pen. I bred and raised these from my show blacks bred from a Lavender rooster. Pen includes a rooster and 3 hens and they have just started laying. All are really nice type and hopefully will produce some nice lavenders. I have some eggs in the incubator now confirmed they are fertile and going to start including these as well. (Egg code B/LC)

    10. **Project pens in Creole and Blue Barred. Eggs may be included from these pens as well.

    All birds on our farm are blood tested Pullorum/Typhoid clean. We see that our birds are kept happy and healthy by giving them the best feed and TLC daily! Our Heritage RI Reds get to free range while our purebred bantams are kept in individual breeding pens away from predators. We feed a high quality, high protein all natural game bird breeder pellet with vitamins and minerals in the water daily to insure high fertility. We also feed a little scratch grains, Calf Manna and veggie treats from the garden daily. We LOVE spoiling our birds and it shows!

    Chicken raisin' is all we do so I assure you we gather often to keep the eggs from getting to hot or to cold to stay fresh and fertile for you. Our hatching eggs we send out are no more than four-five days old this insures the eggs are stronger to handle the shipping. They are turned three times a day and stored in a temperature controlled room to assure you the best possible hatch. Eggs are usually fairly clean, but may contain occasional soiling. I do not wash eggs but will brush of excess soiling if present. Washing can contaminate the eggs and may decrease hatch rate. Eggs are wrapped individually in a long strip of bubble wrap then nestled and secured in crumpled newspaper and box is clearly marked FRAGILE. I have found if I don't put Hatching Eggs on the box they get treated better also, but will gladly mark them that way if you so want. I've had very good success shipping this way. I pack and ship they way I would like my eggs shipped with lots of packing! We have had an excellent hatch rate on our farm ourselves this year as well as with our shipped eggs. However, we cannot guarantee your hatch rate due to circumstances out of our control. Rough postal handling and incubator mishaps will make perfectly fertile eggs not develop or hatch. Purchasing shipped hatching eggs is a risk. Please be understanding and know this when purchasing hatching eggs. When your eggs arrive carefully unwrap them and store them pointy end down at room temperature for 12-24 hours to help the air cell settle from shipping. In this heat though I have found it best to go ahead and set in the incubator and not turn for 24 hours. I have done this on shipped eggs I have bought and so far still having good luck hatching even in this heat.

    I have Fibromyalgia and can't work. My chickens are my therapy that keep me going, selling a few hatching eggs and chicks helps me buy feed for my little feathered loved ones, THANK YOU for looking!

    Hugs, God Bless and happy hatching from Lucky Pickens Farm!

    Dear luckypickens,

    Hello Roslyn,

    I just wanted to touch base and thank you for your great service. I was shocked at how wee-tiny they were. So cute!! I am happy to report that all 14 eggs arrived safe and sound and that upon candling them today, 11 are developing and show visible blood vessels. Only three are not. At this point, you have done everything within your power to give me a great opportunity to hatch these wonderful birds. I will be leaving positive feedback today. I will keep you posted as we approach hatch just so you know how we did. I think getting 11 viable eggs from the 12 I bought is a super deal. Thank you again.

    All the best,
    Amy

    The only reason I am not snatching these up is I'm afraid I will get some new colors that I will fall in love with and want to breed (I have enough on my plate now). [​IMG] Yours are so pretty!
