    Actually, their "first-week-anniversary" was yesterday, but they were already sleeping when we got home..[​IMG]

    This morning they were ready for their shoot!
    This is Mellow Yellow, the palest of our "litter" and probably a rooster. He's always very calm. [​IMG]

    This one's named Polka Dot, thanks to her exquisite colour! She's probably a daughter (sure hope she's a girl [​IMG]) from our red x buff bantam cochin.

    This fellar's name is Racing Stripes, born with two Viper stripes on his back. He's getting some black stripes in his feathers.

    This is Peppy Normal, born with the "simplest" colour. She's getting some pale spots in her feathers now.

    Awesome photos!!!! So very cute [​IMG] I have two cochins and I wish I had more! They are the greatest little chicks (not so little anymore - 6 weeks old now). They follow me around the run, always wanting to be near me or will fly up to my shoulder to roost. I could seriously have a whole coop of these little guys and be happy [​IMG]

    Thank you for sharing
