    I know mille fleur cochin has become a very popular new color and I was googling around checking out what people had in different parts of the country. I came across a little gem in California. A lovely gal, Lynne, is on f2 generation and said she is starting to make some exciting progress. I thought I'd post a few pics and see what you all thought.
    Here's her first roo as a peep

    that same roo at 3 months

    Here's another roo, Casanova with some of Tom Roebuck's buff columbians

    Here's Rusty the roo who is in with some red she hopes to outcross her milles with to improve color

    She is also working on lemon blue and has nice d'uccles in mottled and mille as well as nice blrw. She did not use her d'uccles to get mille. She started with two roos from someone else using the mottled/wheaton/buff combo. She will be selling eggs in the spring so if anyone would like her contact info, I'd be glad to pass it along. Just PM me.

    I think she's outside San Diego. I thought of you when I saw she was from Cali

    Hey Patty, I just got an email from Lynne. She says she's only 20 min. from Temecula...much closer to you than San Diego. Im soooo jealous of you. I don't want to live in CA for the sun and fun but I'd live there for the milles!!! [​IMG]

    I think she's going to join byc too. [​IMG]
