    Yesterday, these 2 sweet girls came to live with me! They are a mixture of red cochin/mille fleur d'uccle and are about 7 weeks old. My kids named them Brownie and Daisy. Brownie is slightly bigger and darker in color. Daisy dives under Brownie whenever she gets spooked. LOL I am in love with them already!

    Unfortunately, my other 2 babies turned out to be boys. One started crowing Friday, and the other on Saturday morning. All of you BYC'ers were right about the sexes. I am so lucky that the lady I got them from allowed me to switch them for these girls!

    Here are Brownie and Daisy!
