In the Brooder
- Dec 18, 2011
I got a "free exotic bird" with my last order of chicks in the spring. One is a beautiful buff cochin (as far as I can tell from internet pics!) and he is HUGE! Reminds me of a dinosaur when he walks around. Anyhow, he is such an awkward mater because of his size. Can hardly get on the girls and sometimes straddles and is otherwise just pretty silly looking. He is really sweet and shy but I am worried that he could be hurting the girls. I do have one mysteriously injured hen - she has a gimpy leg and I was wondering if he could have caused this? She is in isolation and getting around a little better every day but still limping. I am just beginning to think about giving him away - except he's so sweet and pretty! Ideas?
