Description:

Cochins are known the world over for being big friendly balls of fluff and feathers. (They're so chill that it's hard to get them to stand up in photos!) They don't lay very well but are popular because of their sweet personality and fantastic mothering qualities. Cochins became famous in the 1800s when this Chinese breed was given as a gift to Queen Victoria of England, who absolutely adored them.

PLEASE NOTE: the color blue does not hatch true in chickens. Blue is a diluting gene for black. So, 50% of the blue cochins will hatch blue, and 25% will be black. The last 25% will be "splash," having received two diluting genes. Splash is a very light color, pale blue or white with "splashes" of black and darker blue in the feathers, especially in the wings and tail. Please keep this in mind when you order -- not all of your blues will actually be blue! Read more about BBS genetics.
