    Would cochins be any good to eat? I have four cockerels that are eating more than their fair share and are bullies to the other chickens. I'm trying to get rid of them on C.L. but no luck. I'm thinking about butchering them. They are 14 weeks old, large breed.

    Once the feathers come off a chicken is a chicken. There is a difference in the taste and texture of the breeds but that is a whole different topic.

    well, i will tell you that the fox we have staking out my chicken coops thinks they taste great...... it has only snatched cochins ignoring the other two pens(one has nice big fat standards in it)
    so, if you don't mind plucking all those feathers they must be mighty tasty. [​IMG]
