    I took some pics of my pair of GLC today--the other hen is SERIOUSLY broody...she's on some GLC & Light Sussex eggs.
    Barnabus--and yes, his comb looks funny...he got in a fight with my Sumatra rooster (through the wire) back this winter while I was at work. His comb bled & froze & got frostbitten off...so it's from an injury...he used to be "normal" looking. [​IMG]

    Clementine with her new saddle...she hates it, too! But it seems to be helping.

    Oh I cannot forget my broody one....her name is Beatrice--I know, not very creative since my other Beatrice passed away not very long ago but I love the name!

    WOW! More Gorgeous chickens! You make me want to write Cochins down on my next years wish list. How big are your roosters? They look enormous! I only wish that someday I will have a rooster as "not normal" as Barnabus, LOL!

    LOL Thank you! My cochins are large birds...of the two large cochin breeds I have, the Lemon Blue rooster is larger than my Golden Laced. I'm working on adding more size to them, though. I would guess he's 12lbs? Cochins are addictive--they are VERY sweet!
