Chickens with bloomers

 I love, love, love blue cochins, but they certainly don't pull their own weight in the egg laying department.  So, when I placed my layer chick order in June, I sprinkled in a few bantam blue cochins, and some d'uccles that I simply adore to just see in my coop.  Both breeds are calm, sweet little chickens.
The standard sized Blue cochins are my very favorite, but I will settle for the little version for now, it isn't as hard on my checkbook to feed them this way, 4 bags of chicken feed a week is killing me right now.
I also got indulgent and threw in 6 Blue red laced Wyandottes, I already had some silver laced Wyandottes, and I really like their temperament as well.  I always am careful to house chickens with similar personalities, it stops me from being attacked by aggressive roosters and the coop is a much happier place for everyone.
