    My 4 cochins and 2 JG are really growing and getting so pretty!! Just had to share some pics. Didn't get all of them and a couple of the older ones are in the picture also.
    The first picture is all of them and Henry the Roo but Esther the blue cochin is missing. She was in the coop still sitting on an empty nest!! [​IMG]

    Quote:Hi Wildsky: I think it's because their runs are both at least 10" of sand. It's doesn't really get muddy and when they dust bath in it, it shakes right off. Then of course when they are out in the backyard it's just grass.

    I think the sand base makes all the difference because the black ones keep that blue/green sheen all the time also.
