    Who’s gonna have bantam Cochins this spring?

    Not looking for anything fancy — buff, black, splash, whatever. My kiddos love bantams and I’ve been talked into getting a few. I know the hatcheries will have them, but I’m hoping another breeder might. No luck finding any local yet (south MS). Thanks!

    What color is my bantam cochin?

    This is Chrissy my frizzled bantam cochin pullet I got as an extra egg with silkie eggs I bought. Now she just kinda lives with my silkies and 2 other non-silkie hens. I believe she is a black with gold leakage, but she has a couple white tips on her foot feathers. Is that some kind of leakage...

    Breeding silkie + 2 other breeds. What to expect?

    Hello! I will be breeding a silkie rooster to a bantam brahma and a frizzle bantam cochin. The 2 non-silkie girls live with my silkies and I figured that since I'm probably gonna accidentally mix their eggs in with the silkie hatching eggs, I might aswell purposely hatch some chicks from them. I...

    Scruffy chicken?

    My chicken, Soap, is a giant blue cochin. She's 16 weeks old and her feathers look scruffier compared the other two (also 16 weeks old). She dust bathes and preens so I'm wondering if this is genetic. She doesn't seem ill at all.

    Pullet? Bantam cochin frizzle

    I'm pretty positive Krissy here is a pullet, but just wanted to double check. 7 weeks old. She was given to me as an extra egg together with some refund silkie eggs. I was only told that that egg is from a bantam cochin. To my surprise she also turned out to be a frizzle.

    Intro.

    Hi everyone. Fell in love w chickens about two years ago when my mom volunteered me to adopted five chickens from her coworker who was moving. So far we’ve been challenged by building a coop, rehabbing a used coop, mites, relocated raccoons, broody hens, and the terrible loss of our first...

    Feathered feet in heat

    Hello! I’ve got a pair of cochin chicks. I have read several times about being careful that they don’t get too muddy on their feet. I realize for winter that can mean frostbite but what about summer? I provide my girls with a shallow dish they can walk into and it helps keep them cool. Of course...

    One hen is trying to steal another hen's baby chicks!

    This is very bizarre. So I have one hen that had her chicks hatch at least two weeks ago. She's been walking around with them happy as can be. However, there was another hen who was broody at the same time, and continued trying to sit on the eggs until yesterday (I was removing the eggs from...

    Cochin really a cockerel?

    Hello! I thought this cochin chick is a cockerel. As I am living in a no roosters allowed area, I posted an add in the local chicken group on fb and someone wants him. But this one lady messaged me saying that he infact is a she?! So now I am confused. He (or she?!) is 2 months old. Does...

    Too Young?

    Hey just wanted some opinions. I have a Cochin hen that is broody and I would like to hatch my own eggs this year, but I’m worried she if her being young might not make her a great candidate for a mom. She was hatched in October and she is still kinda small, not full grown yet. Her eggs are...

    Cochin Cockerel?

    Each week I change my mind about this chick's gender. Right now I think cockerel. Any experts out there have any ideas? He is about 6 weeks old.

    Bantam cochin fertility issues

    I bought a trio of bantam cochin chickens. And the hens are laying eggs, and I have hatched a few of their eggs in the past (6), but the fertility is extremely low. Their age is about 3 years, and I feel like the problem isn't with the age, I think they face difficulty in mating. The male does...
