What is the typical age a standard cochin will go broody? Is 6 months too early?
6 months seems quite early. Giant cochins are slower to mature much like other giant breeds. On the other hand, I have a 6-7 month old bantam cochin who has been broody for over 10 days now. I let her have her own single egg to try.
Thanks. I thought it would be a bit early, since they are at the point of lay, but not laying.
Been searching for a mature silkie hen to suit my needs. A couple of standard cochin hens popped up and I know they tend to be runner up for best broody.
Yep. Once she gets going, she'll do her best to hatch anything.
May have to pick them up for future purposes. Thanks
