    OEGBman is correct.

    I have 5, and just got my first egg from one today, who just so happened to lay it in my lap! [​IMG]

    Here's a pic of mine,

    DO NOT make eye contact with that psycho rooster! [​IMG]

    hey! thanks ya'll [​IMG]
    my girls can finally know their place in the world - silver penciled cochins.
    i just couldn't find any pictures to identify them by. and the guy that i bought them from said - i have no idea what they are, they are my wifes... lol [​IMG] i just knew they were cochins. and in my eyes, they were beautiful!
    they do lay the tiniest eggs. i bet the babies would be SO CUTE!

    btw, thats one pretty flock you got there! even if your rooster is demented. [​IMG]

    anyway, thanks again!!
