Barred Cochin

$4.65

Barred Cochin chickens are a massive Asiatic breed covered with an extraordinary abundance of soft, fluffy, feathers with light and dark colors alternating in parallel lines along each feather, making for a beautifully striped bird from tip to toe.  Cochins were introduced from China in the mid-1800s as Shanghais, and they created a sensation wherever shown. Today this breed is still a beautiful show bird and highly prized for exhibition.

The Standard size Barred Cochin is one of our family favorites. These large, feather-footed birds have an excellent disposition making them a good choice for a backyard flock or urban setting, and they weather the cold well. Cochin hens are ok cream/brown egg layers, and good setters.  This chicken is also great around children making it a perfect pet for the family farm.  Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the miniature version of the breed (bantam) Barred Cochin.
