I am in Ct and will miss this swap, but I am on the lookout for a nice temperment roo, bantam cochin I think. Do cochins naturally breed or do they have to be inseminated? I had heard someone at the Oxford show say they needed to be inseminated because of the heavy feathering in "that" area and I really dont feel like giving a butt trim!

Quote:actully, yes to breed good you should pluck around the vent of the female and male cochins becouse of too many feathers. There feathers make it harder for the male to actully get the girl if you know what i mean. lol in other words it can not find the way in. lol
but mine have not had that promblem, but this is why when soem one shows a female cochin they do not breed her until they are either doen showing her or out of season of showing.
well for that and also breakage of feathers.

I had someone contact me looking for 2 pullets - RiR and Mottled Java 12-14 weeks to slip into their flock before there child comes home to find that something took them.
Anyone know of any?

I only have mottled Java roos left and I do not do RIR.
