Here is my flock of gentle giants. They are giant cochins. I have a black roo, that has a small amount of brown leakage in his hackles over 2 blue hens, 1 black frizzle hen and 1 splash hen. I will warn you that I have gotten partridge babies out of this group. Here are some pics of them.
I hope to get my colors better on this flock. In order to produce blue, black and splash (b/b/s) from this flock I will need to get a blue roo. So I acquired one from a friend. He is young, but will grow quickly. His name is Little Boy Blue. This should take care of both getting splash colors and not getting partridge.
My silkies are babysitting him right now. Here is a pic of a few chicks out of my current group.
Here is an adorable little blue boy. I could tell he was a boy at two days old! He was trilling at the new babies telling them to be quiet because he thought there was danger when my dog barked. How cute!
Here are the show quality giant cochins I recently hatched. I hope to use some of these birds to improve my flock. I hope to keep a blue roo over 2 black hens, 2 blue hens, 2 splash hens and 1 barred hen. I think the ones with white chests are barred cochins and the little white one is a splash. Don't you just love the furry legs?
