    So, September 14 our hen hatched 7/10 cochin chicks. 6 of them survived. They are splash, golden laced, and mille fluer. This will be a photo journal on how they mature. I will try to update a pic of them every Saturday. If there pics aren't updated the I will try to get them ASAP. Here they are-
