Chicken Whisperer

This morning I'll be talking about Cochins with Andy Schneider and Pat Foreman. This painting wasa done in 1898. The Buff color was especially popular. It caught the eye of the poultry fancy and was bred into many other breeds during the second half of the 19th century.

Also, use the Search function to locate more posts on Cochins in my blog. Tuesday, October 26, 2010 has a detailed post about them and their history, with several illustrations. Friday, January 9, 2009 haas the drawing of Queen Victoria's original Cochin Chinas.

News of another breed: Blake posted that he has some Dark Brahmas available. Contact him at blake.ragghianti@gmail.com,

It was great to hear you on the Chicken Whisperer radio show today! I have already contacted our local FFA chapter to see if you have your book in the library :-). Thanks for all of your great information!
