    So rain I've had since he/she was 2 weeks old. I don't know if it's a roo or hen, but Rain is Rain. Rain is now 6 months old and HOPEFULLY I'll have eggs soon. The comb has not grown in about 2 months and has always been red.

    At least what I can see of her makes me think she's a hen. She's very pretty!

    So I guess Rain will not be laying any eggs soon!

    Rain is beautiful! What kind of chicken is he?

    He's a LF Blue Cochin. He's a truly gorgeous boy. As he ages he gets darker sickle feathers. It's weird how blue colchins look, dark blue top and light blue pants and feet, but it's cute!
