a few more
Here is some pics of my bunch and what a bunch it is. I'm sort of like Noah's ark. I have 4 brown/reds. 2 buff, 2 white, 2 partridge, 1 blue, 1 blue splash, 1 black, and 1 silver lace. I just had 6 more hatch and can't wait to see what colors they grow up to be!!
Jnmerwin very pretty birds. I like the brown in the second picture. Nice Rooster too.
Jim Heinz, here are a few pictures of the Blue Cochin hatched from your eggs. The girls will soon be laying. They will be covered by the Blue roo Samson I posted earlier.
The third girl from your eggs is a splash. She likes my Birchen roo
That's a Bo Garret white in the back.
One of the blue girls again
Same girl different pose
Wow. Thanks for showing them. They look really nice.
I'm really pleased with them too. I love the darker blue.
I purchased eggs for Blue cochin from Bo Garrett's Blue pens and will have more pullets and a few cockerels to choose from also. They are only 3.5 months old and are filling out nicely. Will post pictures tomorrow.
Saw the picture of the cockerel on the Okies thread and he has very nice rich leaden blue color. Yes, they will be huge, mine are massive and still growing. I hatched quite a few large mottleds this year but I am not too happy with the heads on them, the combs are a bit messy and need work, this is something I have noticed in all the breeding lines of large mottleds I have ever seen.
Bo, here are more photos of those that hatched from your eggs...most are dark blue. There are a few black and one lighter blue.
I think I know which are pullets and which are cockerels...
Size comparison...Cockerel vs pullet..a few of the cockerels are the size of the pullet...so may actually be pullets.....
Cockerel ? pullet looking at the neck feathering. Great feathering on the feet.
This one may be a smaller dark cockerel. It is much smaller

Iowa splash pullet and Garret black cockerel. She is 7 months old and he is 4.5 months old.
You guys are making me want to get some largefowl Cochins again!
Gee, do I need to box some up and ship them to PA???? Those Langshans don't have near enough feathers, cochins will fix that quickly
Haha! You might have to! I do so love the Cochins...
Killing me over here! The last venture with them did not end well. Every so often you have to get back in that saddle!
