Cochin Chickens are known for their very soft feathers and fluffy appearance. They have a profusion of long, soft plumage that makes them seem larger than they actually are. Cochins have round bodies, a single comb, and feathered feet. They lay around 2-4 brown or tinted eggs per week. Cochins are very broody and are often used to hatch out fertile eggs from other birds.
The color blue does not breed true. The chicks hatched from blue parents can be blue, black, or splash. You will receive hatchery choice colors when ordering. Read more about blue genetics in our Help Desk Article.
