    I am on my second batch of chickens. I just got 7 new little ladies (well I hope ladies) and one of them is a white and gray cochin americana mix. She/he is super calm. Is this normal for a 4 week old? I did see it run around alot when I let it run on the grass... took me a while to catch it!!!!

    My cochins are very calm. In fact, the only time I've seen them have a hissy is when all 14 of them are trying to sit in my lap at the same time [​IMG]

    They just do it, I guess they [​IMG] me. I have to do the chicken yard shuffle everytime I go in the run so I don't step on them [​IMG]

    I'm curious to see what your Ameracauna/cochin mix birds look like. I recently got some cochins too, however some of them look as if they are a mix with maybe some Ameracauna. Could you possibly post some pics?
