You'll recognise the front of the house.

they look beautiful, don't leave the door open otherwise they will be in the kitchen with the dalmations :lol:

my poultry have many companions they blend in quite well with. they like the horse droppings best.

No Matt, I don't know of anyone who has them. The club frowns on non standard colours. But it doesn't stop me from doing loads. I expect they could be on the horizon for me. Once I have sorted the lavender and Chocolate cochins out that is! :thumbs: But they will be called silver Colombian Cochin's and not one of the Brahma lights. Or any of the other misleading nomenclature. I think it is Blue Colombian silvers they are calling Ermine isn't it? :hmmm: :hmmm:

Oh yes Ermine is what the Faverolle people call silver colombian is it. But the answer is no, not to the best of my Knowledge. Not yet any way! :wink:

I used Silver Jubbilee Orpington K. I used partridge and Buff cochin, but the partridge showed good results first I think the Orps are EWh and the eb of the partridge has taken over.

I think I am going to use the lavender I am working on or the dark buff/cinamon boy in the background of the picture of the gold laced boy.

i am still battling with my millies, i like your dark red birds. i think the poor quality feed we have here has just wrecked this seasons hatch :roll: along with unseasonal rain. i want just one to replace my rooster as i think he is mad as he does strange things like eats newly hatched chickens.

i see your boys are still getting into blues with each other :lol:
