    I got a breeder's reject yesterday and have to say she's the sweetest thing. She's an 8-week old black cochin bantam with a twisted beak. She trills constantly!! Every time my DBF hears it, he chuckles.

    This is the same guy who had a snit fit when I told hime I was getting a 4th chicken. He gets to name her - he's "unveiling" it tomorrow.

    I'm hoping we name her "Funky" cuz she's a "Funky Chicken".

    Will post pics soon.

    You could maybe call her Tribble (think old Star Trek series) cause they trill too.

    OK, so we decided to name her "Tribble" after all. Thanks for the suggestion!!

    "Tribble" is really a perfect name for a bantam cochin - she does look like one. Plus, her addition to our flock was a rather unexpected multiplication. My DBF nearly had a conniption but has grown attached to her. She's such a sweetie of a bird.

    I'll try to post pics later. Only have them on my cell phone right now.

    tribble is absoutely perfect name, but I hope she's no trouble.
