Blue Cochin

$4.65

Blue Cochin chickens are a massive Asiatic breed covered with an extraordinary abundance of soft, fluffy buff 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.

The Standard size Blue 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 lay small, cream/brown eggs, and are 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) Blue Cochin.
