    How long does it take for a bantam Cochin to mature? I am getting eggs sometime this coming week so I am thinking the latest I should have chicks is by Jan 8th.

    Do you mean incubate? Or how long until they start laying?

    We have had our Buff Bantam Cochin since mid May. She began to lay at about 5 and a half months, about 5 eggs a week. Then, early in December, she went broody. She's currently setting on 7 eggs, 1 hers and 6 others a mix from our 2 Barred Rocks, 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte and 1 easter Egger. They are due to hatch New Year's Day (we hope they all really do - a little nervous since its Vermont and its cold!) She's very sweet - best of luck with yours.
