My hubby was outside putting together the several smaller chicken shelters and he called for me to come outside right away. I went out and he took me over the run with the bantam cochins. What a surprise to see two babies! I knew two of the hens were setting on eggs, but had heard it was rare for cochins to actually hatch. (was told by several people that because of the feathers, cochins don't usually have fertile eggs). I did not expect to ever have any babies, but I am tickled pink there are some. She is still setting on two more eggs and when I checked the other house/shelter they use, the other hen has three eggs. These are the mille fleur cochin bantam group that I got from a person on here. I have been thrilled with them and so has everyone who has seen them. Now I have some babies from them.
