I threw on some clothes and jumped in the car and rushed into town. I was so scared on the drive home because they weren't "peeping"! The box was SO quiet.
This is "Java"
(she's a 4 month old pullet *young hen*)
I chose her because her markings are VERY nice.
The "Mille Fleur" pattern in Cochins is a work in progress and there are no perfect birds. Therefore, I am selecting pairs that will lead me closer and closer to developing a show quality line of Mille Fleur patterned Cochins. (much like I did with developing a line of quality, HST Shetlands!)
This is "SPLASH".
(he's about 3 1/2 months old ~ cockerel is the name for a young rooster)
I love his color and think he has very nice "type" for a young bird.
Both of these birds are very young and will most likely change dramatically as they mature. But, I feel like I'm off to a good start...
Thank you, Josh Singleton for all the hard work you've put into developing the Mille Fleur bantam Cochin and for letting me purchase these sweet, beautiful birds. I love them already and look forward to perpetuating the line that you've worked so hard to produce!
