Cochins – Bantam Size
Cochins are an Asiatic breed covered with an extraordinary abundance of soft, fluffy colored feathers. The 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. They make remarkably good pets, and a pet Cochin can live between 8-10 years. These Bantam size Cochins are one of our family favorites.
They have a bright red, single comb, along with red wattles, earlobes, and a red patch around the eyes. 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, 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 love the Bantam Cochin chickens also like the Standard Size version of the breed.
