Well, Lola, my "blue" cochin is 5 weeks old today.. and a friend of mine whose brother raised pekins (he refuses to say cochin.. he's a "purist") pointed out to me that she is not, in fact, a blue cochin... she is a lavender cochin! She is getting to be so pretty!! And has started to assert herself in the pecking order. It's so fun to watch the goings on of the brood! I have heard people talk about watching "chicken TV", and it really is more entertaining than some of the drivel on TV these days!
