    Hi everyone. New to this site and I love it. So, a few days ago, we got some Cochin chicks. They were a day or so old and the same size as other chicks we have bought. I am not sure if we got the standard/giant Cochins or the bantams. Are the bantam chicks noticeably smaller? Any help would be great. Thanks

    They are 1 1/2 -2 bricks tall and four days old.

    Yes, there is a marked size difference between large/standard fowl cochins and bantam cochins.
