    after a summer of searchingI found some std cochin cockerels. I had 10 blue pullets and no man. yesterday at the swap a man had 4 SPLASH and 2 blue. I selected 3 splash and took them back to very patient hubby, (up since 4 waitng at car selling spare roos) I wandered around for a bit and came back to find 6 COCKERLS. I know they look a little like tribbles but this is ridicullus . hubby said the man came buy and gave them to him. so here are my new boys. they are suppoded to be aproxamately 4 months old
    darker splash has the most "presence"
    lighter splash
    little blue
    group shot well 5 of 6
    thank you

    They look nice. It is almost impossible to rate them now as they still have alot of growing to do. They will each change considerably over the next several months. I raise std cochins and it is very hard to know which ones will be good until easily after 8 months old, most of the time even longer than that. They have alot of maturing to do. All I can say is the blue guy is pretty dark, I prefer lighter ones. All in all, they look great though! Best of luck with them.

    I agree with ChickenLady 100% but if I had to choose the best it would be the lighter splash.
