    ISO bantam mottled cochin hatching eggs. I would be looking for about a dozen, but I would take more or less depending on what you have! If you know of any breeders, send them this way as well.
    Thanks!

    I have two hens left, but my rooster was killed by a dog early last year. No luck finding a decent replacement, so I ended up keeping a mixed breed bantam that I hatched out. He's gorgeous, but about as far from a bantam Cochin as one can get.
    Sorry! Best of luck!

    I will ask if the gal that gave me mine (yes, GAVE) if she still has hens and roosters. I know that she lost quite a few birds to a weasel several months back, but I think she does have a rooster.
    Where are you located?

    Don't thank me yet! They are definitely not show birds, but are fun, hardy, cute lil brooders. My two remaining hens (lost my other to a goshawk a month or so back) are both amazing broodies, and moms. The younger of the two is still tending to her three month old "babies". Here she is with her shipped egg babies the day after hatching. Most devoted little hen ever. 20190809_130335.jpg

    Thankfully, I am not looking to show cochins! I am looking to start a mottled silkie project and cochins seemed like the best fit! And of course in the meantime, I could always use extra broodies!

    :clap

    Good news! She does have hens and a rooster. She asked how many eggs you wanted. PM me and we can yammer about getting some eggs shipped!
