    I wanted to start this to see the progress of everyone's birds that were received from wwmicasa1's (Lynns') Birds. [​IMG]

    Or, if your are starting your own breeding of Lemon Blue cochins, Please share your pics and stories too! [​IMG]


    Lynn, please post how your project is going! How are your babies feathering out? Please post pics and keep us all updated on how your project is coming along. I have 2 Roosters, and deciding if I should keep both and separate them with their own girls or just keep one....

    I will post pics of my Crew soon! [​IMG]

    Yes this is the breeder I got my Babies from.

    She is a great person and I just wanted to get in touch with others who have Hatched Eggs from her as well.

    Was wondering how their progress on their chicks has been going. [​IMG]

    I am off of work for FOUR DAYS! [​IMG]

    Lots of pictures coming!!! Hopefully tomorrow I can let my chicks run around for awhile! [​IMG]

    They are now 13 Weeks Old! [​IMG]

    So updates please! The original Thread was locked, and I enjoyed reading about who was hatching and looking at the pics of these beautiful birdies! [​IMG]

    I am ordering some eggs from her this fall. I find her Lemon Blues absolutely stunning.

    I might be able to keep both, depending on how Noisy these Cochins can Be. I was wondering what you Genetic Gurus think about what girls should Go to Which Roo????

    I think they're very pretty birds, but I can't see them ever getting to the genotype that is 'usually' necessary to attain lemon blue.
    The colour generally known as lemon blue is gold blue birchen which is quite a simple colour but it has a particular genotype. Without certain genes it will not really be lemon blue.

    Aww thats depressing that you didn't get any lemon blues. Maybe you'll get lucky and the blue one with color coming in with change to look more like Lemon Boy. [​IMG]

    I will be really really sad if I get eggs and none come out lemon blue. Darn genetics. lol

    Beautiful birds anyway.
