Hey Steve, the second day we had triple digit temps, I lost my little cochin rooster and a hen to the heat. I think the little guys were too fat to take the heat. I was really upset over it. I had a few eggs, so I cranked up the incubator. I pulled 6 little cochins out of the incubator yesterday. Smile
The rooster that died was a brother to the pullets and rooster Sarah brought you. I have four that are the pretty blue like their daddy the other two are black like your rooster. Smile

Those girls aren't much bigger than pigeons. LOL
She may turn back up with a clutch of chicks. Those little game hens can hide better than any other kind of chicken. Smile

I have watched several friends go through the missing hen episode, only to have them turn up in about a month with a trail of little cheepers behind them. Hopefully you will have the same outcome.

Congrats on the new little baby cochins! Can we get pics? I have never seen a cochin chick before (I don't think).

Well, they say the pathway to Hell is paved with good intentions. I guess I have been paving where my camera is concerned. Smile
It has been really hectic around here the past couple of days. I had planned on puppy and chick pictures yesterday, but it just didn't happen.
I hope to get some today. Smile

I had a little banty, all black, that would sit on my right shoulder while I worked in my flower beds. She never pooed on me, ever. But, she watched like a hawk for any worms to be unearthed. Her name was tinkerbell. I miss her.

I had 10 mil Fleur d'Uccles that were running loose until a few days ago. The little things were all over us when we milked the goats. I only had the one little rooster. These bigger rooster had started chasing the pullets and mistreating the little rooster, so I put them in a tractor where they are safe. I visit them several times a day, but I miss them running loose. Smile
