    Hello everyone! I live outside of Lubbock, TX and I am new to the BackYard Chicken. I currently am getting started with a pair of show quality RIR bantams but I am looking for someone who might have some show quality Standard Cochin eggs that I could hatch out or young chicks. Thanks :)

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    So glad you could join our community! You might start in our Buy Sell and Trade section in the hatching eggs section or chicks section. Maybe someone has some for sale....https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    You might also do some chatting in your state thread. Maybe someone nearby breeds these birds....https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/44/texas

    And stop by the Cochin thread too. Maybe someone there and hook you up with some hatching eggs or chicks...https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/195235/cochin-thread

    Good luck and I hope you can find this wonderful breed!

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    I hope you can find some good Cochin eggs! I'm not aware of any large fowl Cochin breeders, so I can't help you out personally. Hopefully, somebody in the Buy-Sell-Trade section can help, or people on your state thread!
