    I got 2 Cochin chicks last week. They have barely grown at all. Still tiny little things. Actually smaller than the EE that I got on the same day.
    I have another Cochin that is now 9 weeks old. She grew FAST. Starting the first week, she was way bigger than the other chicks her same age.
    Are they bantams? How can you tell the difference?

    It is possible that your chicks are bantams. Do you have any pictures that you can post? I only have Standard size Cochins, so I guess I'm not much help. But there are so many people on here that do have bantams that might be able to answer your questions. Also have you tried doing a search here on the BYC?
    Hope you find some answers.
