    That is how I would describe them. Tell him to get 2 of each color. You are sure to end up with some hens then.

    Thanks everyone...he is almost there. I never wanted bantams and i actually got rid of a couple that i started with, they were roos though. I just hatched some cochin bantam chicks and they are having their "suite" made this weekend so they are not in with the 110+ standards that we have.
    I am having him pick up everyone they have! My cochins need friends right??????? LOL [​IMG]
