    Do you want Bantam or LF? I have bantam and will hopefully have eggs available in the spring. I have a Blue/Black/Splash pair laying right now and have a lavender pair that will hopefully be laying this fall.

    I will have eggs from my Show Quality standard cochins starting the middle of April. The chicks will hatch either Blue or Black. The last Spring show is the last Saturday of March. After that everyone will get a butt trimming and be ready for breeding season.

    I am currently rebuilding my website and will upload the new pages once they are done. Once everyone has molted I will take pictures of them in their prime. They will be on the site too. Standard eggs run $2 per egg + $14 shipping for up to 14 eggs. I send 2 extras and 16 is all I am comfortable shipping in the boxes I use.

    I will have Eggs from my bantam cochins. My roo is breeder quality, because he has too many spikes on his comb. There will be 2 SQ black hens, 3 SQ blue hens, 1 BQ blue hen, and a BQ black hen. The ladies that are breeder quality are a few ounces larger then a SQ bantam. Because of the lesser quality these are $6 per dozen. Shipping for up to 2 dozen is $14.

    Hi,
    We will have / should have Standard barred cochins next spring.
    They should start laying in about a month.
    Take care,
    Angela
