Standard Silver Laced Cochin Pullet

Meet Alex, seven week old Silver Laced Cochin, named after character ‘Alex Vause’ on the Netflix series Orange is the New Black. She’s my curious bird, the explorer, and always in my way when cleaning. She’s fearless, and the one I expect to be the first to step out of the grow pen on freedom day… in about two more months.

If you’re a fan of the Orange is the New Black show, notice Alex looks like she’s wearing the same statement eyeliner as character Alex Vause. ha ha!

Cochin Chicks Trading Fluff for Feathers

Looks like another 2 weeks and the Cochin chicks will be ready to leave the brooder! They will be in a coop in plain sight of the existing flock for about 3 months, then set free to join the others. Sounds simple, unfortunately it’s not. We’ll see, my Silkies are very docile and have always accepted new birds with little confrontation. Fingers crossed!
