Hi all! We have one black cochin cockerel, and two cochin hens. We also have 6 buff orpington hens. They are just gorgeous and we could never eat a pet! Little N. got 4th place at the county fair for his cochin pair--not bad for his first entry and our first year having chickens! Hubby is a fireman, EMT and woodworker. He works about 80 + a week. I am STILL unemployed, but I am still very much looking.
