I have three bantam cochin pullets, hatched October 16. So that makes them almost seven months old, right? All three have laid VERY consistently for the last month and a half. Most days I've gotten three eggs from them. All three have gone broody in the last few days, and I set the last 7 bantam cochin eggs under the first one on Mother's Day. The second one got 5 mutt eggs from my standard sized girls on Monday. The third one decided to set the mutt eggs with the 2nd girl. So I've got three broodies in two boxes. This is exactly what I got these cochins for, and I'm amazed that they all went hormonal at the same time. I guess people are right that they are good little broody girls. I just hope they're not too young, and will finish the job properly. Keep your fingers crossed for us! Let's also hope that the cochin eggs are pure... the little cochin boy is very protective over his girls, and I haven't seen the big roos get anywhere near them. I've been watching the cochin eggs when I've cooked with them, and they're nearly all looking fertile. I can't wait til May 31!!! Go girlies go!
