    Hello everyone, a month or so ago James had his cochin roo's for sale, and I bought one. I just got him in the mail and he's doing just fine. I took the black one. He's so handsome.

    Wow!! He's very handsome. He must be pretty healthy to be as shiny as he is too. [​IMG]

    He is so funny to watch, I will probably add him tonight to the hen house. His crow is very high pitched and pretty.

    Make sure you keep him quarantined, for a while. Anytime you add to your existing flock you should keep them seperate for a while. I have 2 buff cochins and 2 blues. They are cute to watch with their fluffy feet. I can't tell from the pic is he a standard cochin?

    He's a bantam roo. I suppose I could put him in my brooder box downstairs, but if he's healthy why should I keep him away from the rest of the girls?

    I've always read on here when integrating any new chickens they should be quarantined. You never know about diseases. You wouldn't want your existing flock wiped out. Do a search about it on the forum and then use your best judgement.
    He sure is a looker! I've always wanted black cochins they have a beautiful iridescent sheen to them, like black Langshans. And cochins are hilarious when they run. It's a wonder they don't trip over their own feet!

    I let him strut around the kitchen yesterday morning after I got him and he was a hoot to watch. He even got up on my table. Then I had to put him in the brooder box.
