Cochins are another very calm, beautiful bird that has mainly earned its name for being a show bird. Cochins have a lovely, fluffy and round appearance. They are gentle broody hens and mothers that are also eye candy in the yard. Whenever, the power goes out or I have an egg or two to hatch, whether it is a duck, turkey, goose or chicken egg I know they will do the job for me. My top gentleman rooster in the coop for many years now is an old favourite Standard Splash Cochin.
They are dual-purpose birds and decent layers of brown eggs in the winter as well. They lay medium-large very pale brown eggs. They are cold-hardy, yellow skinned, feather-footed and have single combs. APA Weights: Rooster 11 lbs., Hen 8 lbs.
