But definitely not in a bad way. I have to admit, I am totally drawn to blue animals. American Blue rabbits. Blue Slate Turkeys. Blue Copper Marans chickens. This weekend we got two more blue animals.
A Blue Cochin named Cordon Bleu came to us yesterday from a friend in exchange for a couple of turkey poults. She’s an older hen at 3 years old but the reason we got her is because she’s constantly broody. She couldn’t raise chicks at her old home so we’re hoping to let her have that experience here. I just love her feathers. She’s super mellow and friendly and seems to be adjusting to her quarantine pen pretty well. She’ll have to live in there for 2 weeks while the rest of our birds get used to her. Fortunately every one seems to be ignoring each other pretty well.
Our other blue animal is our new little American Blue doe, MJR Yasmine. She’s a cutie and really mellow. She’s getting used to her new digs as well. She’s still pretty young so we won’t be breeding her for several months but in the meantime she’ll be getting lots of attention.
