    I currently have masses of Silver Laced bantam Cochin eggs and a small smattering of Mille Fleur eggs.

    But no black Cochins in my flock sorry [​IMG]

    Ok, Horsefeatherz, I want 6 of the SLC eggs! I saw those for the fist time 2 days ago and fell in love.
    What an impressive bird!
    PM me. If u can send them out on Monday that would be fab! I. Have heard its best to ship early in the week to avoid them hanging out at the post office over the weekend. Got any pics of your birds? I love pics! We can set up payment too. Got paypal? Or take credit cards?

    Id get too attached to the blues...lol
    Cochins are fricken CUTE! No matter what color [​IMG]

    I want to start breeding the black cochins. I could easily get some hatchery chicks, but I worry about quality. I come from a k9 background and believe in breeding to improve the integrity of the breed, not to make money off the animal foolishly. Does that make me insane? I have an absolutely gorgeous little black cochin hen and a beautiful golden laced too, but she's a bit big for a bantam. Gread broody though. I briefly thought about Sultans but I am not prepared to spend thousands importing quality birds...and finding european breeders is a joke! I don't want hatchery sultans!

    I have a couple of emails out to some well known bantam cochin breeders but have yet to hear back. I'm hoping they get back soon.
