New Breed for 2024! 

My Pet Chicken is excited to offer Mottled Frizzle Cochin Bantam baby chicks for sale! Cochins are known worldwide for being friendly balls of fluff and feathers. They don't lay very well but are very popular because of their sweet personality and fantastic mothering qualities.

But these aren't just any Cochins: they're bantam, mottled, and frizzled. (Well, 50% of hatchlings will be frizzled... Long story, but you can't breed a frizzled bird to a frizzled bird, or you end up with big problems, so we breed frizzled roosters to smooth-feathered hens, which produces a 50% rate of frizzling in offspring.)

Frizzled Cochins are a good choice if you are concerned about your birds flying over fences, since their unusual feathers make flying any distance difficult. Even better, their quirky look won't fail to get the attention—and maybe incite the jealousy—of your neighbors. Like Silkies, Frizzles are favorites of children and all others who are young at heart.

Cochins do go broody, by the way... They make great mothers, but when they're broody, they don't lay.
