    very excited to be here. Hear to pick everyone's brain... I've got to get chatting it seems before I can post pictures of my beautiful birds.
    I've just received some standard cochins from Ideal poultry in the mail.. everyone seems to be alive and well aside from a little pastie-butt . problem dealt with, no doubt due to the excellent advice of the seasoned veterans here on BYC..
    Chickens seem to be few and far between in southern Utah.. maybe too far from Idaho, but none the less the flock is content in the desert.
    Really concerned about keeping the Cochins cool in the sweltering summers here. I'm sure there's plenty of advice on that topic in these forums.

    The key is keeping them comfortable.

    SHADE!... and lots of cool water.
