My favorite hen was killed this Sunday by one of the family dogs. She was a bantam cochin/japanese cross and was one of the friendliest chickens I have ever seen. She knew her name and loved human attention. I've posted about her a few times. She was a great mother and pet. She will be missed. Her death has made me reconsider keeping the other bantams I have. I have ordered several standard chicks and eggs so space will be an issue later on. I only have three bantam hens and with all the future large hens on the way I don't want them to be bullied. Sally's daughter is a blue hen hatched on the 4th of July last year. Her father is a blue splash cochin rooster. She is solid blue and looks like a pure cochin but is only 75%. She was bred for temperment but hasn't been handled so is a bit skittish. Should be an excellent mother. Bijou is an older mille fleur hen that is very friendly and beautiful. Her plumage is spectacular but her size is a little too large for show. She's a great mother and will make a great pet. I also have Bijou's daughter. Her father is a blue splash cochin bantam. She looks like a self blue d'uccle with looser feathering. She was hatched on the 4th of July last year and was raised by her mother so is a little skittish. I would like to find a home for these three. They are pets and I would like them to be treated as such. I would prefer not to separate them. I live near Saratoga Springs NY and will not ship. If interested please post or email me. If I cannot find a home for them I wll keep them, I would just prefer finding a loving home. All three are currently laying well.
