    My new LF Cochin hen gets here in one hour and 30 mintutes!!! Can anybody tell I'm excited!! Lol. She is a new project that I will be working on. Haven't came up with a name for the color yet, but the color is a mix of soft buff and self blue. VERY pretty. You can get this by breeding a buff orpington with a splash blue cochin. I had to get this beauty! Now she is mine and I am going to work on the color. Will post pictures once I get her home

    Hey, I have seen some LF cochins that you could saddle and ride as well as a Langshan or two that would fit that bill!

    Bo, I have 3 pureblood LF Cochins 6 months old (females) one isn't as big as the others, do they get more mass with age?

    Yep they will continue to grow frame well after a year of age and will not completely flesh out unit they are nearing 18 to 20 months old. I always love to watch my hens mature as they come into their first season of lay, the body deepens and gains width as well and the heads also become broader with age. A good cochin can be likened to a fine bottle of wine, they only get better with age!

    Blessings,

    Bo

    I enjoy watching the Cochins grow too. The cockerels are amazing when they hit that full grown stride! The hens are gorgeous like a big handfull of feather dusters!
