    Hi, I purchased this hen about 3 months ago. The breeder called her a "silver diva". I'm wondering if she is a cochin? If so, how old you think she is? We were wondering when she would start laying.

    Thanks!

    Thanks everyone and thanks for the welcome, ghillie! I am really excited to be here. We have had hatchery run for a few years and have just discovered heritage breeds. We are very addicted and excited to learn as much as we can!
