    I have an over-abundance of frizzled banty cochin roos and need to try and hatch some smooth feathered girls for them. Will anyone have bantam cochin hatching eggs this spring?

    Would like to have some names for future ordering!

    Thanks!

    Here's the roos I have--I'm not sure if Bluebell is considered "blue" or what. and I have no idea what color to call Rusty!

    Looking to find them some smooth girls!

    Bluebell ( he was named when I thought he was a girlie)

    Then I also have a black frizzle boy.
    I only have 2 smooth--1 is blue and 1 is cuckoo.

    Checkers is the cuckoo--I think that's what its called!

    I can get pics of the blue one later.

    I would love to trade but right now I'm only sure of 2 pullets--I may have something else to ad if you're interested, though!

    Julie, your black mottleds are precious! Do you have a list or should I just contact you in February? I won't start hatching again until about then.

    Silke--I would love to trade some--I'll get with you in February and see what we can work out.
    Thanks!

    Rusty is so cool! Almost looks like a blue laced red!

    I will have some in the Spring as long as everyone cooperates. I have a pen of one roo and 7 hens (all black) and one of one roo and 5 hens (all blue). I'm not sure, yet if I'll keep them seperated or put them all together in the big pen. OR put the blue with the blacks and black with the blues to get some other colors. :)

    I won't be hatching much next year because I think I'll be a little overwhelmed as it is. [​IMG]

    i was just looking at ur pics on another post yesterday i think it was. i didn't know it was u,lol till just now. i agree that one does look similar to blue laced red i thought same thing and very beautiful.

    pics of mine r on my byc page and website. they like to cam hide so there isn't to many pics of them but in some the show pics r better close ups of them. if there is a smooth birchen pictured with them i no longer have him.

    I love Rusty's color, too, just not real sure what to call it!

    Wow, Asher, I can see from your siggy line that you're a busy one! I'm putting you on my list and I'll contact you in the spring to see what you have available then. Thanks a bunch!

    Silkie,
    Is the one on your BYC page considered blue or splash? I still have trouble with my blue/splash! [​IMG]

    I'm curious as to what Bluebell might be considered. As a chick he was very blue/gray but is he considered a blue?

    I'd love to get with you in the spring. Your birds are beauties!
