Lacy has 7 babies. Lacy is a pet quality Birchen Cochin. She has 5 Cream Light Brown/Blue Cream Light Brown Dutch, 1 bantam Faverolle, and a Faverolle mix(yellow with black wings).
Pockets is a show quality Bantam Cochin. She has 2 Dutch and 2 from my mixed pets. The black and white is from Baby Oreo and Andy. It will look like oreo if it is a pullet or a B&W Andy if it is a cockerel. The Black is from Andy and Midnight(bottom right of the previos link).Pockets originally had 7. One Dutch I helped hatch, but really shouldn't have. It had a leg that was fussed bent at the knee and dead below that. There was no way for it to recover, so we put it down. A Dutch was found on it's back dead 10 minutes after I let them out to explore in their 8x10 pen when they were 2 days old. A second Oreo baby died a couple days later from some sickness. The last 4 have been fine since.
The fine folks over at Life on a Southern Farm are giving away a "HenPals" Chicken Nest Box.
