Silver Laced Cochin

$4.35

Silver Laced Cochin chickens are a massive Asiatic breed covered with an extraordinary abundance of soft, fluffy, feathers.  Silver Laced Cochins have a distinctive and beautiful black and white lacing feather pattern, making for a beautifully laced 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 Silver Laced 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) Silver Laced Cochin.
