    [​IMG] I haven't started selling any hatching eggs yet, so I can't help you out there...I'm gonna need the same advice in a few months. [​IMG] But I'd really love it if you'd let me know when you have mottled cochin eggs available.

    It all depends on the quality of the stock the eggs came from, are they SQ or PQ? Maybe they aren't SQ but are much better than production. You sould consider what you paid for eggs. Then you need to post pics and see what kind of feedback you get, if people don't like what you have it won't mater what you ask..

    I have noticed a lot of people lately asking an awful lot for eggs. My suggestion is don't overdo it. Ask a fair price and you will always have customers.

    I've got a breeding pair and I've got 2 young hens in with them now that should start layin anytime now, I hatched them out with some others that were japanese BTW's and they've already started. I've also got 13 hens and 7 roosters that I've got up forsale their anywheres from 3 months to 6 months old.

    I love cochins period!! think I'm goin to get me a few more colors.

    I am completely obsessed with the cochins. Once you get your first good quality bantam cochin, you're fate is sealed! lol I want at least one of every color, too! [​IMG]

    I know what you mean.. I used to have a buff standard rooster he was huge we Called him Dudley. He was fine til I brought a few chickens in and they all started roosting outside the field they staid in.(we had a mini donkey that protected them and our pot bellied pig) coyote's got him I think along with the others. Then my sister decided she wanted some silkies and did an order for chicks and I orderd some blue bantam cochins, the rooster got gone with the others and the hen lived on our back porch and I had gotten a puppy form the horse market and he never botherd the chickens until he got to playin too rough and killed her. So I got out of chickens for awhile after that.....
