I'm hoping one of you cochin breeders out there can give me some advice. I ordered two blue cochins from Meyer Hatchery. At 10 weeks one is a lovely, healthy splash. The other has always been the runt. She's a beautiful slate blue, and I've been told that the dark cochins can sometimes be small. The small size isn't the problem, though. She's always walked as if her pants are falling down. Awkward, slow and not far. As far as I can tell, her feet and legs are fine. I've even trimmed her long feet feathers thinking that maybe they're too big in proportion to her right now (don't worry, I cut just the ends and not down to the quicks.) Am I missing something? Is there something about cochins that I don't know? My first hen was a sweet white cochin, but that was 15 years ago and I haven't had any since then (plenty of other chickens, though all clean-legged) - not until these two. You can see the cochins on my live-streaming cam at http://www.hencam.com/barncam.php Thanks!
