Hello, I just lost my Cochin Roo to a predator a few weeks ago leaving a few unhappy ladies behind. I just got a Roo on Saturday, so he is only a few days old. How old are they when they can start to breed, I would like my ladies to hatch a few eggs yet this year if possible:barnie They are the standard Cochin's.

Mine started at about 20 weeks, the same time his sister started laying. Now he is 6 months old and out of control! He is mating not only with her but with my three other, much older, hens.

It depends on the breed, but most between 5-6 months of age.

Best Of Luck
