Cochins are giant fluffy, feathery balls, and Buff Cochins are beautiful representatives of the breed.

While Cochin hens experience relatively short periods of intense laying, most people do not keep Buff Cochins for their egg-producing capabilities. Instead, they are loved for their attitudes as they are sweet, docile, friendly birds.

 Buff Cochins were among the first varieties to be included in the American Poultry Association's Standard of Perfection, in 1874. The first Cochins arrived in Massachusetts in the 1840s. White, Partridge, Black, and Buff Cochins were included in the first standard.

The breed originated in China and was sometimes called Shanghai Fowl in the early days of their popularity. And they were popular! Along with Brahmas, Cochins inspired what is today known as "hen fever," which was a period during which keeping "fancy" poultry became an enormously popular pastime.
