Cochin Eggs!

A couple days ago, we were proud to get our very first Cochin Egg!  We have 3 LFC hens and 1 LFC roo and 1 BBC hen.  They are almost 7 months old, so we were like "Its about time!".  Now as laying picks up (We've gotten 3 or 4 eggs so far) we can start to sell them for hatching eggs and chicks!  The way we do this is we figure out what colors people want and use our breeding coop to monitor which eggs come from who, so we normally put just a pair in at a time.  Looking forward to having more fuzzy footed peepers in the spring!
