We have a small farm in Alabama. I have, for as long as I can remember owned chickens. Blue Cochins are my favorite, and for years have been my only breed. I have expanded this year and built a new chicken house for 40 baby chicks that were hatched the end of January. These new chicks are not all cochins. We have some laying hens and bramas, along with a number of langshanks. Nice to join a group of all chicken folks.
