    I have a tiny OEGB and I was wondering size comparison, width and height wise. Not weight

    Cochin bantams are pretty large. I'd say that they are about twelve inches tall, and about that wide.

    Cochin bantams should weight, on average:
    32oz for cocks
    28oz for hens

    Which is very small compared to the LF Cochin which weigh about 11lbs (cock) and 8lbs (hen).
    Some weigh a little more or less than the average, but they are small :)

    I have a bantam frizzled cochin who is much smaller than 12 inches -- I would guess 7. She is pretty darn small. Could it vary by breeder?

    Maybe.. I was just wondering because I have a little hen in a small pen and I wanted to make sure it had enough space
