They look beautiful.

Cochin Man, I do agree though. I do love looking at my pen of Buffs wandering around and he just stands there protecting the girls.

Cheers and happy breeding season

That buff is THE most beautiful bird ever.I assume it has won heaps of prizes.
I loved your video too, especially watching those great bounding blues .
Thanks so much!!

Okay Okay Timbo, Ill eat my words :lol:

You can KEEP tantalising me with your pics.

She is definately a beauty. Just lovely :thumbs:

That first pic of the Buffs look like some here however I realise that when side by side ours may be smaller, is this correct Timbo or Cochin Man?

Its hard to tell comparison for size by pics.

Timbo would you email me a pic of your Blacks so I may print it out and put it on my wall in the study for inspiration, please :mrgreen:

email is banditbrie@hotmail.com

Big Sigh, time to go and look at mine now :)

Cheers

Victoria

I would say your pushing against an open door on the type of the birds over there. I think the type is very very good, I assumed the size was the same as the ones over here. I really admire what you are doing with the cochin blood down there! :thumbs: The standard is changing without bothering to change the wording in the official standard. There is a leaning towards the Bantam Cochin type bustle, like the barred boy rather than the feathers just protruding through the bustle (As it states in the standard)Like TCM's buff and mine. I'm close to getting it with my blacks.

Here's last years.

And this is this years efforts.

Timbo,

Thank you sooooo much :thumbs: for the pics of the blacks.

My favourite pic is no 3. He is just DIVINE. and I want him :mrgreen: (he is now my computers wallpaper :biggrin: )

I have been concentrating on the buffs in my Cochin lines so far this season but I'm just waiting for a pen to be freed up and then my 2 Black cochin boys will be getting their girls.

They are from different lines completely but were hatched together and have been together the whole time and have NEVER had a fight with each other (they are nick named "The Blues Brothers and one is short and fat and the other leggy and slimmer :lol: ). It is going to be a shame to seperate them because that will definately be the end of that mateship :( , but hey, I will get some great black cochins from these 2 matings and then combine the offspring together to get to where I want to be. That is my plan anyway :thumbs:

Cheers

Victoria

The blacks are looking fantastic beetle green even in the footings would you like to share with us Timbo how you are going about creating some of your new creations and do you know if the blacks have any Orpington blood?

Hey all,

Im concentratiing on the whites and blacks this season too. although tthe added bonus of using a very large Splash Roo over some of the blacks is Im getting some excellent BLues out with great feather and getting taller every year.

About to set some eggs from some reallty nice dom. white Cochin as well. Need to improve middle toe feather in these, but they are coming along very very nicely.

Ill post some more photos on the week end of some of this years babies.:thumbs: Ill try t0 pop in a photo of a very nice little cockerel which may be the start of blue lights in Cochin...... we will see how much I can cope with yet another colour project.

I'd love to see some of your blues, it's such a difficult colour to get right! Over here the big question is what is the best shade to go for, the only answer being, the shade the judge of the day prefers!! :nail: :nail: This is the only boy that has made it through the cull this year.

Hopefully he will fill out, to be something like his great great grandad. :thumbs:

Your birds are beautiful Timbo! Next time I go home for a visit, think I can smuggle a few back over to Aus with me?

This is a bird I bred and sold to Dorinda Fontana, in Scotland. She has had a lot of show success with him (Dennis) and now he is in a book called beautifull chickens.
