I have a black Cochin pullet who is about 8 mo old. She is just now starting to show signs of maturity- her comb and wattles are starting to become and nice red color. I'm not too surprised it took her a little longer to develop since we had such a miserable winter. But are Cochins normally slower to develop than other breeds? I know they can be good mothers and are likely to go broody. I do plan on getting her some fertile eggs if that happens (as we are rooster free, Thank God). Any knowledge out there about the frequency Cochins usually lay? I assume not daily, but 3 or 4 eggs a week would be nice. Thanks for any information!!
