Meet the Gentle Giants of the chicken world! Head-to-toe feathers and sweet personalities will bring delight to chicken enthusiasts everywhere.
The Cochin appears as a mass of soft, fluffy feathers, beak to toes almost literally! The legs and outer toes should be fully feathered so that seen from the side you cannot see toes – only feathers.The fullness of the feathering gives them the appearance of being much larger than they actually are. Still they are quite hefty when full grown- where males can reach up to 12lbs and females around 8lbs.
Being the big fluff balls that they are they are a cold-hardy breed that may require a little extra attention in the warm months. They also are winter layers, and you can expect 180-200 tan/cream eggs per year. Hens also are know to make great mothers, and can go broody.
We offer Black, Blue and Splash Cochins, and adorable add to any flock!
