White Cochin

Cochins are known the world over for being big friendly balls of fluff and feathers. They have a profusion of long, soft plumage that makes them seem larger than they actually are. They are brown eggs layers. Although they don't lay very well but are popular because of their sweet personality and fantastic mothering qualities. Cochins became famous in the 1800s when this Chinese breed was given as a gift to Queen Victoria of England, who absolutely adored them. Photo from mypetchicken.com

#2 on our chick order. 89 days and counting.

On the hen house front, I saw a sign for free wood next to a sheet metal shop and was just starting to dismantle a pallet so it would fit in the minivan when I was informed that that was not the wood they meant. oh well. I will check craigslist tomorrow.
