Day Old Cochin Bantam Chicks

Hatching mid-February to November.

The cochin bantam is one of the most popular feather legged bantams to own. There are 16 color varieties already recognized in the bantam standard. They are small balls of fluff, docile, and a wonderful addition for any backyard flock.

Production: Cochin bantams are not great producers of eggs, however a hen may lay around 3 eggs a week if not more. Cochins are known to go broody and make exceptional mothers.

Temperament: Cochin bantams are extremely gentle birds. They make wonderful pets and great incubators since they can brood and raise their own chicks. They need a closed protected coop, They do well with limited space and confined area, however can be allowed to free range with supervision. Due to their size and temperament, they are susceptible to hawks and predators during the day and night.

History: The bantam cochin made its first appearance in English in the 1860s. It was said that the breed was bred down from its large fowl predecessor, however the foundation was actually brought from China by returning soldiers. The original color was buff.
