    I thought I wanted a B.O. to complete my flock, but have fallen in love with Cochins... would anyone have a lone pullet or young hen for sale?

    Thanks!!!

    I may have some cochin crosses available after a hatch in a couple weeks. Probably not as old as you are looking for but let me know if you are interested. They will probably be either barred or white.

    If they be pullets, I would be very interested! Where do you live, Tororider? Can any of the crosses be sexed?

    No, none of them can be sexed at hatch as far as I know. I am selling them straight run. I live in Redford, but will be in Whitmore Lake a lot so I could meet you there.

    Cat, Are you looking for a bantam or standard? In another week I should be able to pick out a pullet from the 6 chicks you saw the other day.
    Vickie from the other group only has standard but if that is what you want, she has some pretty nice birds.

    I'm not sure how far it is from you, but Destiny Farms in Brighton (off of Kensington Rd) has cochins and she's always hatching out new chicks. She does have started birds also. Very friendly people!
    Here is their website:

    Destiny Farms is good, Joni and Mike are great. She actually sold some of my cochin crosses for me and some of the sex links I hatched out.

    She had a nice cochin-isa brown mix last time I was there a few weeks back. I wish I would've bought her, but my daughter was stuck on getting a barred rock.

    Wait, tororider, did you have barred cochin roos there? I remember seeing a few that were adorable! I wonder if those were yours?

    I am in Bay City. I will GIVE you a stunning buff cochin pullet (age 3 mo.) if you also take a Polish rooster.
    (Okay, I am totally over-run with roos! Help.)

    Thank you all! I wish I could take your offer BayCityBabe, lol I have secret chickens... (nothing in my HOA's bi-laws, but not taking chances drawing attention to them.)
