What are you looking for from your chickens? Pets or eggs? From my understanding RIR and leghorns are big layers, but cochins not so much. I have a mix in my flock because I wanted some good steady egg production, a variety of color and some good pets. So I have a few easter eggers, a cochin, a brown leghorn, and a few wyandottes. Here's a pic of some brown leghorns and white cochins when they were chicks (the two yellow fluff balls in the middle are the cochins, the brown leghorns are chipmunk striped...but are a little hard to tell from the golden laced wyandottes):

They're about 3 months old now so a LOT bigger, but I don't have any recent pics. Maybe if the rain lets up, I can get some tomorrow. My mom has a brown leghorn rooster with BEAUTIFUL coloring. I really didn't expect them to be all that pretty, and they do look more...scrawny, I guess is the word for it, especially next to the feathery/fluffy cochin.

I love my cochin, she's a beautiful chicken. But I'm not fond of her broodiness....so many weeks wasted sitting on nothing
If I had it to do again I'd probably go for a less broody variety, truthfully. She sure is pretty though!!

Get cochins! Get cochins! I just LOVE my bantam cochin rooster and my cochin x silkie crossed chicks. I never thought chickens (especially my rooster) could be so friendly! My cochin rooster is way friendlier than my silkies hens. That says something. So if you want friendly chickens and nice roosters, I'd suggest cochin!


Here's my little man sitting on my knee!
