    WHAT?? I'm NOT looking for "self promotion"!! I want an honest critique of my birds so I can learn and improve them. Please excuse me for stepping on your toes, your highness. [​IMG]

    Your mottled have good type and will probably develop into pretty nice birds. Your splash birds are hard to tell because I only see the back ends of many of them. Only 1 profile that allows a good look at that bird. Good eye color and comb.

    i have a splash mottled. Best of both worlds! I am crossing him with my best black mottled girls. I have 6 eggs developing under a broody now with another 13 under 2 new broodies. Going to mark all the eggs tomorrow and then split them between that pair and my other pair of broody mottled girls. Of course, now that it is in the 40-50's temp wise, everyone goes broody! LOL. I have 5 broodies currently......yay me [​IMG]

    At least it makes hatching of eggs easier.....

    Quote:One of my Mille Fleur pullets just went broody on 6 eggs. I sure don't need more birds but alot of folks have been askeing for Pullets/hens to go with all the roos I've been "culling" their way. What are the chances that these pullet's egg will have any female chicks? - 50/50, ha!
    I am begining to tell which pullets have better type and have a couple to sell but still have alot more roos to part with. I know it isn't a rare problem but I just wanted to vent my frustration and having too many roos is better than having no Cochins at all.

    I went to a poultry show this past Saturday and saw alot of very nice birds. None were more apealing to me that the Cochins. There is a breed/breeds for everyone and Cochins are the one for me.
