I posted a while ago about a local breeder whom I got three polish and two cochins from; the three polish all died pretty quickly. I email her and hinted about a refund or credit, no response (one died in two days). Now one of my cochins, all feathered out about 6 weeks, is fading. I am not going to buy from this person again but I am disappointed as I wanted to get more chicks from her as she is local. So should I assume she is just producing and not caring what she sells? I noticed the adult cochins are on CL for sale now. I am pretty disappointed as I am attached to these cochins. I think next year I'll get chicks from a bigger hatchery. I hope the little one survives; I gave it a slurry of chick started and sugar water (the croup was empty) and it seemed to perk up a tad and drank water on it's own. I'll know in the am if it's going to make it or not. It seemed fine this morning. The last one is normal so far. Sigh.
