    I so enjoyed your web site and looking at all the wonderful 4 legged and 2 legged residents.
    Check your local feed store. They should be able to direct you to a cochin supply.

    OOOOHHHH! Forget the chickens I want that Gypsy! [​IMG] I am so jealous right now!!! My second favorite site (BYC being my first of course [​IMG] ) is THIS ONE I can sit and drool for hours at those Gypsy's. [​IMG] Of course I'll have to win the lottery if I'm ever going to acquire one, most of them cost more then my DH's car...when it was new! [​IMG]
    BTW welcome to BYC! [​IMG]
