About Me

Started breeding Cochins in 1983 the buffs were my first and the ones I still like the best. looking forward to the whites and blacks I am getting in the importation in 2013. I also am passionate about Light Brahmas and have bred them for a couple of years. I hope that our Beloved Cochins and Brahmas go from strength to strength. I am looking forward to judging at Canberra this year at the National. Hope to see some of you guys there.

Hi Luke.. Was wanting a confirmation on some information I heard the other day.. thought you may know.. Is it true that if chickens have experienced a bout of resperatory ? s(sorry no spell check on this site) disease as young birds then it could make them infertile as adults?

Hello Cochin man... ?? Luke right??
I think I have emailed you before.. You put me onto EBlack right?.. Thanks .. He is a nice man.. Also Thanks for the info on the colours of the birds.. I know that was a long time ago that you responded and I have not replied.. sorry... I am going to try to get into the site more often as I do love reading everyones news.. I do have another question though that I thought you might be able to help me with.. Last June or maybe it was July.. you posted ....
" It is still a bit to cold for the males to be very fertile yet but you might get something from your younger cockerals dont forget to pluck or cut feathers around vents of male and female but try not to leave prickly quill feathes pul them out if they are evident. "
Why should I be doing this?? Does it have an effect on the fertility rate if the feathers are not cut away? As I am having problems with two of my girls getiing fertile eggs and was wondering if this may be is the cause.?? My boy still jumps on all the girls yet only one of them gets fertile eggs.. My friend at the poultry club seems to think that maybe the girls are a lot older than I first thought as they both have bright yellow legs and apparently that is a trait of older birds.. Is this correct??
Would appreciate your thoughts.. Thanks Cid..

Well what a great show we had a Yass over 25 Cochins and over 150 Brahmas (I think) Maybe a record for any show in Australia. For those who did not make it you must try hard for next year you will really enjoy it.

Photos should not be to far away. It is still a bit to cold for the males to be very fertile yet but you might get something from your younger cockerals dont forget to pluck or cut feathers around vents of male and female but try not to leave prickly quill feathes pul them out if they are evident.

highprotein diet is also a must as well as minerals ect in water Allfarm in Hasting sell it get your local supplier to order in or try Bellsouth.

keep up the good work everybody breed as many as you can and cull hard that is the secret to success and dont breed from rubbish i.e small narrow birds lacking footfeather and thigh fluff. Also select for good pea comb in Brahmas small tight to skull triple combs ect

Good luck all
