    Hello all! I am somewhat new to chickens. I had them growing up. I got my own flock started almost a year ago. 1 silkie hen, 6 bantam cochin hens and 1 bantam cochin roo. I have been doing all sorts of researching on this site and decided to join. I just received a dozen bantam cochin smooth/frizzle eggs in the mail, hoping for a decent hatch rate. Fingers crossed. Also throwing in some eggs out of my own hens. Any advice is welcome!

    Good luck with the hatch!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
