Good Tuesday afternoon. Before I go on with the show results of my birds I entered I thought I would show a really bad picture of my new giant cochin pair. Hey, it was early...and well, the porch is a mess...and I hadn't had my coffee yet..so sue me...lol.
As big as these chickens are, you would think they wouldn't be afraid of anything, but they are indeed a very mild mannered shy breed apparently. They just came out of their cage yesterday, venturing out onto the porch. I opened the porch door, but they had no interest in going outside yet. I kept having to run Tiny off as he thinks he is tough and had to come back up the steps and intimidate the poor things. Everytime I would run him off...it wouldnt be five seconds I had gone into the house and shut the door and I could here him coming back up those steps! I ended up just shutting the door and letting them have the run of the porch for the day, like I am today. I hope to get the porch cleaned up today and maybe get them to go outside for a little bit.
They are really very sweet and will let you pick them up and pet them pretty easily.
My first impression of names for them was Beauty and Beast..lol. That is all that has come to me so far.
Oh I guess you may be wondering where these came from?
I bought them from Jerry, the man that heads up the whole show. He always brings his trailer with pairs for sale and this year I had my mind set on getting a pair. Oh yes, I do plan on hatching from them...as I want more of these big beauties out in the yard. :) So the incubator will be running here in no time!
