    I purchased 2 sister cochin chickens two days ago. When I brought them home my DH accused me of bringing home emus [​IMG] So after a day of confinement and lots of stink eye (directed at me [​IMG]) from speckles my new cochins are settling in nicely. They are 6 months old and very sweet (but not as sweet as my girl Specks). I would like to introduce Princess and Perdita (no I can't tell then apart)

    All they need is a parasol each!!

    Speckles is not intimidated by their size, she has quickly told them who is boss when it comes to treats.

    [​IMG]
    they both have lots of growing to do!

    Beautiful feathers

    putting up with being held, I heard some fowl language for subjecting her to this

    enjoying their free range time with LOTS of treats, I am not above bribery

    Oh, they're adorable! I've had bantam cochins but never a standard one--they sure look cuddly! They look spoiled, too. [​IMG]

    I now know that the black Cochin I have really IS a bantam! I had my doubts until I saw these pictures of yours.

    Lola is bigger than any other bantam Cochins I've had - only 4 in the past 7 months, but 3 have met unexpected deaths - so I thought, "Another feed store mistake." But your girls are far larger than my Lola.

    They are beautiful! Love Cochins - large and bantam.



    Someone recently told me that Cochins look like they are wearing pajamas [​IMG]
