    Well, I know you've worked with Cochins before, but how about Lavender Cochins? Large Fowl, of course.

LOL She's now down to just one pullet, though after a family of RACCOONS (which they've never seen in the 20+ years they've lived in their house) came in & ate the rest...they got the mama coon but her babies fled into the brush before they could be shot, too...we think the fires drove up here, out of their "normal" range...
     
  7. Quote:I looked your website--you have some lovely birds, indeed! I've never been partial to reds but they are intriguing. I forgot to mention in my original post that I need them to be FRIENDLY. I don't do mean birds! LOL So I'm glad to see that the Buckeyes are supposed to be friendly! nothing is worse than a NINJA roo, flying at your jugular with spurs a blazin'! LOL

    I'll tell you, these birds are so friendly you have to nudge them out from under your feet when you go in the pen!

    Don't give up on the BLRW's. You gotta stick with it. I know you can do it.
