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.  Bantam Cochins: Assorted, Barred, Birchen, Black, Blue, Buff, Golden Laced, Partridge, Red, Silver Penciled, Splash,and White.   **Bantam Cochins are Hatchery Choice and May Not Be Assorted**
