    Thanks for the input. We almost save a couple of hens, but I didn't know if they would lay eggs. I was worried about the size difference until my Aunt told me about her very LARGE Cochin roo was out with her little game bird hen. I had no idea that could happen. She said she has seen it a few times and she isn't harmed at all. Chunk is probably 9 lbs right now and my hens are about 7. I do hope it works out.

    Quote:I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see pics of them!!!!! I love the cornish x's we raised last year- they are such sweet and gentle souls! I would love to be able to keep a few long enough to breed them. I have what appears to be a monster BSL roo that I would like to cover a few cornish girls with.

    Where did you get your cornish from? I'm thinking of hedging my bets (on a longer living cornish) and getting some from the same place if possible.

    send them from your phone to your email
    then save them to your computer (I always use the photo folder)
    then go to uploads (on BYC site) and click browse, choose the pic you want to use and upload it
    then copy and past to your reply (on this forum)

    Took me forever to figure it out, but now it's fairly easy.

    If you can't figure it out, PM me and I'll give you my email addy and you can send them to my email and I'll post them for you.

    Oooops, for some reason I thought you said flip phone.

    Um- is your computer plug-n-play? If so plug the cord into your camera and computer and it should download onto your computer. Then see above posts (just skip the first couple of directions). If your computer is not plug-n-play then I have no clue.
