    That will be an exciting hatch! I started my own Facebook page for Canadians to network, buy/sell/ swap eggs, and such, so now I have some mixed bantams, some faverolles, bronze heritage turkeys, brahmas, Pekin ducks and cayugas ordered! Love that Cochin - might have to get me some of those too! Just bought my own incubator too, so I'll be all set for an Easter/spring hatch. My NYD hatchlings are doing fabulous!

    PS If any Canadians are reading this, please feel free to join my Facebook group 'A Speckled Hen': http://www.facebook.com/groups/aspeckledhen/

    Thanks so much and i am so exited lol i can not wait lol. I should get them in April 1st lol april fools day lol. I will be getting a total of 25 chicks lol all sexed and should be mostly hens. I will post pics on this thread and prob. open another thread of the chicks when i get them in. I will also be breeding a black silkie with a black frizzle cochin to see if i can maybe get a frizzle slkie. I am not to big or well i should say i do not cross breed a lot or anything and that will be my first cross breed project and if i like the feather pattern and stuff i will try to come up with just a couple more projects for summer.

    The only type I have from that list are EEs and I can't say enough how much I enjoy them. Ours were born at the beginning of July 2012 and they started laying on New Year's Day. [​IMG]

    The eggs have gotten bigger already and the girls have great personalities. I want more of them! Good luck and enjoy!
