    Our exhibition black bantam cochin hens have finally started laying after their molt. They are artificially inseminated twice a week right in addition to being in the coop with their "man". Because we show them we don't clip their vent feathers...and because they are so heavily feathered fertility would be lower if we did not AI. Prior to the first insemination I put 18 eggs in my bator and have 12 growing babies from those 18. Now that I have started AI'ing them, fertility should be 100%.

    Below are photos of our cockbird and a few of our hens. One of our hens, Diva, won Best Featherfoot and competed for Best in Show (bantams) last month as the Gold Coast Classic. She also won Reserve Open Champion of Class, Best of Breed and Best of Variety. Honestly, in our coop you cannot pick her out from the other hens unless you look at her legband. I say this because all the hens are show quality and will be entered in the ABA National Bantam Show in January in Lake City.

    These cochins are all Otes Ray line. We have not introduced any outside line...they are just fabulous.

    Please post "sold" if you are interested and PM me. PayPal only for freshest eggs. Paypal email is [email protected].

    Thanks, all....

    Ive never noticed any other breed with red around the eyes like that. Is that in the Standard?

    Yes, it's the standard. Take a look at some show breeders web pages for pics. The color will vary just like wattle tissue color varies. Sometimes it's quite red...many time just a medium pink.

    Quote:I will agree with oldtimegator. I have standard and bantam cochins, and they both have the red around the eye's like that. Some are redder than other's though. My black bantam hen is very red around her eye's.

    Gorgeous birds, no money for eggs right now though. I am also hoping to stop hatching soon till I get my own eggs coming from my Cochins. I hope I am able to actually stop though. [​IMG]
