    Here are a few pics of the bantam cochins from Bob (muddler6) Thank Bob. 100% hatch rate, but one drown in the water dish for the bator. That will be changed from now on of course. Here are the rest.


    One white?


    Two blue?


    Two black?


    Never had cochins so you guys feel free to correct me on the colors. They could be frizzled too, can't wait to see. Thanks again Bob. My first ever 100% hatch rate, and on shipped eggs too. We both must be doing something right, huh?

    Thanks. I am hoping Bob can help me identify the colors from what he has. But I don't really care. Can't wait to see if any are frizzled. Some have a sort of splotchy coloration to the face and beak area. Very cute. I hope everyone else has a successful hatch.

    Thanks so much. Forgot to mention that I put them in an egg carton the last 3 days and I think that definitely helped. I will be using that method in the future.
