Blue Cochin chickens are a massive Asiatic breed covered with an extraordinary abundance of soft, blue colored feathers. Blue Cochins are grayish-blue. As with all blue poultry, they do not breed true. When you breed a blue hen with a blue rooster, 50% of the chicks will be blue, 25% will be black, and the remaining 25% will be splash – a light color with splashes of blue and/or black over the body. They have a bright red, single comb, along with red wattles, earlobes, and a red patch around the eyes. 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.
