    This year I am going to be working on the MF Cochin project - have two cockerels and two pullets so far - need more [​IMG] And cause I just love cochins and bantams are small - I am starting a SL Bantam Cochin project - long, long way to go with it, since I am starting with hatchery stock.

    I also have a mixed egg flock that I hatch from - using the pullets for eggs and cockerels for dinner.

    Plus my Orpington project has birds growing, going to have an EE project and maybe Ameraucana project .



    Maybe I can stay out of trouble with my fingers on all these "projects" [​IMG]

    I am too new with poultry right now, but my plan is to hopefully next year start Buckeye breeding. My brain is a sponge right now and I'm learning all I can. Would love to help this breed come back! Need to find some good stock.

    I'm going to be working on improving bantam mille fleur cochins, starting on LF mille fleur cochins and porcelain bantam cochins (both of which will take a loooooooong time, lol!). Esp. since I'm starting with eggs (set yesterday) instead of grown birds. [​IMG]
