    Can I mix these little guys with larger breeds?
    Arey they cold hardy? Can I leave them out in the coop for the winter?
    Does anyone have comments, concerns, problems with these?

    Please don't bump your own thread. [​IMG]


    Are you talking about Lemon Blue Cochins? I know in the UK they're called Pekins. [​IMG]

    If so, I know a few people that have them on her LF and Bantam varietys. Go to the Cochin Thread on BYC and find some breeders there to get birds from. I should think they'd be able to mix with other breeds. I have Bantams and Large Fowl chickens together, and they get along just fine. If your winters are very cold and snowy I would think it would be okay to leave them in the coop. Just make sure they have enough room, otherwise they will get bored and start pecking eachother, etc.
