    The care for Cochin bantams isn't a lot different than for other chickens. Each one needs at least 2 square feet of inside space, and preferable at least 5 square feet of outside space. They can eat normal feed, though higher protein game bird feed will keep the feathers in better condition. Cochin Bantams have a tendency to get dirty because of their dense feathers, so you may need to give them a bath every once in a while. Check them for mites ever few weeks or so, as they can easily get them because of all of their feathers.
