    Can ya'll show me some chickens? [​IMG] I ordered some chicks to cheer myself up, and they're ones that i've never had before. The pictures online are ok, but i'd like to see some birds that aren't show quality and in their natural habitat [​IMG]
    I'm getting...
    Silver laced Polish
    Mottled Houdan
    Crececouers
    Blue Cochin
    Black Cochin
    White cochin

    Anyone have opinions or pictures?

    Quote:That's a good suggestion. I was thinking "Feathersite", but Google would give you photos from numerous sources.

    I did that already [​IMG] I had decent luck with the Cochins, but almost none with the Creves or the Houdans.
    Besides, I like seeing everyone's birds here. [​IMG]

    I had 3 Larry , Moe & Curly. Moe went to a new home. THey aren't bad, not particularly loving but not crazy either. They don't volunteer to be held, but once you pick them up they are pretty content.
    Their crows leave much to be desired in my book, about equal to fingernails on a chalkboard.....[​IMG]
    They try to intimidate the other chickens, but the other day my bantam cochin, Uno, stood up to Larry and Larry backed off [​IMG] It was pretty funny seeing this little bitty bird stand his ground. Of course they are all just a few months old too.
