Description:Do you want a nice mix of Cochin layers---but you want them ASAP? Can't decide which breeds you want? Or is it that you just happen to love surprises?
Whichever your reason, assortment is a wonderful solution. Cochins are large, friendly balls of feather-footed fluff. They are cold hardy, but they only lay two or three medium eggs a week. Still... that's an excuse to get LOTS of them, no? They're SO friendly!
Order two or more from this assortment, and you'll receive a minimum of two different large fowl varieties from the following list:
- Silver Laced
“Assortment" refers to the possible breeds you may receive in your order, and NOT the number of chicks. Please specify the number of chicks you want to order from this assortment in the “Quantity” field when placing your order.
In other words, if you order one of this assortment, you'll only receive one chick! The more you order, the more likely you are to receive a variety of different breeds — we aim to please!
-- we cannot take requests, as we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and her whims!
If you really want that one particular breed, then you'll either need to wait for its availability to pop up or consider hatching at home
. Also keep in mind that breeds in assortments may or may not be tagged, specific breeds may or may not be noted on the packing list, and we cannot help identify unlabeled assortment chicks.
