    My lavender bantam cochins have been laying for a while now and looks like they are fertile. Only one way to tell for sure and that's to hatch some. So I'm going to set some of their eggs along with some of my silkes and LF cochins. Should hatch around Valentine's Day. My bator is behind me now warming up.[​IMG]

    So I sit 30 eggs, lavender bantam cochins, silkies in blue and black and a few LF cochins. Can't wait to see what my lavenders are going to look like. I have 2 different lines in the lavenders and I have a black hen and a barred frizzled hen in with the roo also. They are just the sweetest birds I have, love to get in my lap to be petted.
