Signing in for the first time from Central Oregon---the high desert---have had chickens throughout my long life and love them all---really love the Birchen Cochins and hopefully finally have a breeding pair---we shall see. Have four young--week olds--2 Birchins and 2 Mottled and with my luck I will have four roosters. I also have laying hens--Buff Orpington, Barred Rock and Golden Sexlink---lots of eggs---enough that I am freezing a few every week so that I will have "fresh frozen" eggs for their down times---also have one Bronze hen turkey---a sweetheart and good egg layer also. I would like to eventually have a few different breeding pairs of Cochins---my Birchin, a Buff pair and ---well, I am thinking about the choices I must make. Looking forward to learning lots from all of you terrific people. The mama at mountaincountryfarms!
