    Hello out there;

    We have been getting our share of inquires from folks searching for some of the "old" color variations of the LF Cochins…. seems that they are disappearing. There have been no new posts for some years and only a handful of people seem to be concerned about their disappearance. It seems the main focus is on the "exhibition varieties". This is an issue for the breed with loss of genetic variation comes loss of biodiversity….
