    Okay guys, my cochin pullet is being a weirdo. I noticed the other day she was sitting in the nest box for a really long time, then when she came out she went under the coop while everyone else was free ranging. I thought she might be ill, so I kept an eye on her. She was eating and drinking fine, and went out with the others,so I figured she was just getting ready to lay an egg. Anyway I always call her my faker, because when she sits in the box she never lays. I have checked her over to see if she was egg bound and there is no obvious signs of it. Today she has spent most of the day in the box. I reached in to feel for her vent, and she isn't pushing like she is trying to lay. Just hanging out in there. No distress. Is it possible for a 6 month old cochin who as far as I know has yet to lay an egg, to go broody? I hope she isn't egg bound, but I don't see how she could be. She sleeps with everyone at night on the roosts.

    These two were difficult to get a pic of.

    I was in the Martinsville RK yesterday. All they had were empty bins. Saved from the Chicken Math!

    Does the blue in the second pic have a cross beak. It might be part of her beard sticking out, i cant tell. I lover her beard and coloring, she is beautiful. She has even got some light lacing on her feathers. Even though I dont know what her legs look like, I would use her in breeding, assuming she dosent have a cross beak. Like I said before i dont really know a lot about the other varities. Your rooster is pretty too. His tail set is a little off, but in pics that really doesnt mean anything. YOur chick are cute too! My favorite is your blue hen, i just cant get over how pretty she is![​IMG]
