    I have been told it is pronounced like "Couch-in"

    I would have guessed it was more like "Kosh-in"

    So, what is the correct pronounciation?

    Maybe this is just an Oklahoman draw, but when I bought my Cochins the man, and everyone I know around here calls them Coach - ins. [​IMG]

    I've been reading about them this whole time and saying "cock-ins" in my head. [​IMG] Glad I didn't do that in public! [​IMG]
