Silver Laced Cochin Chickens Details

Day Old Silver Laced Cochin Baby Chicks

Hatching February to July.

Cochins are known for being particularly mild mannered chickens, and with the Silver Laced Cochins you get mild-mannered and absolutely gorgeous in one, fluffy chicken package.

Production: Most people raise Cochins as pets. They are large birds, and could be raised to provide meat, but they are not great layers.

Temperament: Silver Laced Cochins, like all varieties of the breed, are affectionate, calm birds.

History: Originally called Shanghai Fowl, Cochins fired the passions of flock keepers all over the world when they were first brought west in the mid-1800s. They are striking-looking birds because they are large and fluffy. With the Silver Laced Cochin, you have a large, fluffy chicken with an intricate, black and white pattern.

Because of their heavy feathering, Cochins do well in the cold weather, as long as their feet are dry. With feathering on their legs, toes and feet, they are well protected from cool temperatures.

Silver Laced Cochins were first included in the American Poultry Association's Standard of Perfection in 1874, along with several other varieties. They are still quite popular birds at exhibitions.

Colors: The Silver Laced Cochin has a distinctive and beautiful black and white pattern.
