Hi, Cochins are my favorite! About 3 years ago, I started my own Baby Doll Cochin Project. The F3 generation adult birds weigh 16 to 22 ounces. My first Pure bred chicks are hatching as I type this! I can hardly stand it! I started with birchen cochins(my all time favorite). I know I will still have a lot of work to do on this project. I have a dear friend, who is working with me so that we can perfect the breed and apply for recognition with the APA. This will take some time, but I am having so much fun with them. I am working on several new colors of "Baby Dolls" too. It takes 3 to 4 years to get to this point with the project. I thought I would share the progression of my project with the "Cochin Lovers" here. I will try to post some pictures as soon as I get my camera back from the repair shop. I love this thread! I will certainly learn a lot from the more experienced breeders and backyard scientists.
