Hello everyone.
I live about 25 miles east of Wichita, Ks. I raise black and blue Giant Cochins, which I am super attached to. This week I will be starting two incubators full of Cream Legbar and Black Copper Marans eggs.
I will be hatching out another batch of Cochins as well.
We are about ready to start raising rabbits and Coturnix Quail for meat also.
I am super serious about becoming self sustaining, and will be providing our granddaughters with hormone free meat for consumption.
We've had a huge garden every year for a long time. I enjoy being outside with my chickens and the garden.
My husband has worked at a Wichita aircraft plant for over 31 years, and I own a quilting company.
Thank you for reading my posts. I look forward to learning more from all of you..
Many Blessings,
Tammi Jo

Forgot to mention that I do currently have two partridge cochin hens. About two weeks after I bought my blacks and blues from a reputable breeder I ordered 15 chicks from a hatchery because I LOVE the way the partridge Cochins look.
HOWEVER, of the 15 chicks from the hatchery, 13 were Roos with HORRIBLE personalities. They were terribly aggressive even before feathering out. I love my two little partridge hens. But those Roos had to go.

Welcome to the flock. I really love blue cochins. Didn't know they came in giant size - how much do they weigh? They certainly look to have impressive size in the photos.
