    So I have decided that I'm in absolute love with bantam cochins :) I have about ten that I've got from a few people and I'm loving them their colors and personality are awesome
    So phase one will begin in about a month ..
    I plan on ordering a few of each color variety from each hatchery probably a few weeks apart each to make it easier to tell them all apart
    As I'm in missouri I'm starting with cackle :)
    I plan on getting some from ideal and murrary mcmurray
    And I found a local breeder with some interesting color projects
    Meyer only has one variety :-( so I will probably not even order from them ..

    So first question. What other hatcherys should I look into or any good breeders that will ship chicks not eggs ( I'm not a great hatcher but I have good luck with chicks)

    I will post my birds in a few minutes :)

    I don't have any Cochins from Cackle, I've only got one right now, a mottled Cochin hen (she lives with my Silkies). I love her, which is no surprise, I've loved all of my Cochins. I've raised both bantams and standards, and their personalities are just amazing.

    There is a Cochin thread (several of them, actually) in the Breeds, Genetics and Showing section of the forum. If you go there and look through them, there are lots of great pictures and people to chat with. I'm sure someone there has gotten them from Cackle.
    Good luck :)
