    I spent half of yesterday washing birds for Crossroads. 2 birds I had entered went into molt so am now only taking 9 birds to show. I am delivering several pairs of Columbians to Crossroads. I have 1 more pair available. Let me know if interested

    I'm a huge fan of barring patterns and I love Cochins. I have recently found Barred Cochins and was wondering if any folks around here sold eggs or birds. I have some beautiful Barred Rocks but I am not very knowledgeable in the area of chicken genetics. Did the Barred Cochins come from Barred Rocks or Dominique crosses? Once again sorry for the ignorance it's just that I have seen some Barred Cochins that closely resemble a Plymouth bird in the face to me. Thanks for any help! This would be Large Fowl by the way.
