How well do bantam Cochins do as broodies for LF eggs?
I think bantam cochins are about the same size as silkies. My silkies do great with 5-6 LF eggs under them. More than that and they have trouble covering them all.
They'll incubate and hatch LF eggs just fine, you just won't be able to put as many under them. But they are great mothers from what I understand.
Well they are mine.
How many can be put under them?
ETA: how long does it take for the bantam Cochins to mature?
shld do 10 well

my banty cochin wouldnt cover one large egg
well they fluff them selves out & rotate the eggs under them. the ones on outside go into middle , ones in middle go to outside.
