Pros: Friendly, curious, easily handled, adorable
Cons: Slow maturing
My large fowl Cochins are, by far, my favorite breed. They are always the first to greet me and hop up in my lap for a pet. My rooster is a quiet, gentle giant. I would recommend Cochins to first time chicken keepers and those with children because they are so easy going. They are quite slow to grow though, their only drawback in my opinion.
