    Does anyone have some? My DH wants some. What are they like? Do you sell eggs or if close by poults?

    I have one - wish I had more.


    Mine was hatched the end of May 2011 by a bantam cochin and raised with a mixed clutch of chicks (two MF Cochins and one Orpington).

    I just recently had to clip his wings, he was flying up onto the porch roof, looking in the second story window and scaring the upstairs parrots. I also worried he would fly over the fence and be taken by coyotes.


    He is personable without being clingy, often will come to his name and puts himself to bed at night in the hay shed.
