    I just wanted to see who is working on Lavender cochins and their progress. Here is the progress we have made this year. They still have a lot of work to do but this one is much better than what we started with. So if anybody else is working on them I would love to see pictures. Also anybody interested please chime in.

    I used to have a lavender cochin but I lost her this summer. I am hoping to get some more as I love the lavender coloring! I'm sure you'll get alot of great feedback on your coloring! Looks great so far! [​IMG]

    I'm working on Bantam Lavender and Bantam Mottled Lavender Cochins. I have tons of black split for lavender chicks running around.. Lol I have Two Lavender Roosters. One is over two nice black hens and the other is over a black mottled pullet. I also just bought pure lavender eggs as well from Covered Bridge Poultry so should have some lavender chicks running around soon too. I will post pics later [​IMG]

    Danny, BEAUTIFUL!!!

    We are trying to get into them, but we only had one Lav cockerel hatch this spring. I have a bator full of BBS cochins now, hoping for some nice black pullets to breed with him.

    I'll be watching this thread and hope to be able to add to it in the future!

    And, if anyone has some nice split black pullets available near me, let me know!

    Heres my Lavender Cochin Rooster that is over two black hens.. He is on wire so his foot feathering is a bit ratty at the moment.

    A friend of mine has Cochins and i know he LOVES the lavender coloring - is this project mainly in the bantams - or is anyone trying the large fowl?

    I thought I read on the Lavender Orpington thread someone had cross bred a LF cochin with a Lav Orp to get a project going. I am also working on the Lav Orps. If only there was a enough space to do them all!!!!

    Hi! I have 6 that just hatched and 3 that are working there way out. Does anyone have pictures of the chicks coloring? Pale silver with yellowish bellies right? This is my first group of lavender bantam eggs.

    Thanks!
