Hello! I’m looking for a purebred, non hatchery standard Cochin cockerel. Around 6-7 months old. We won’t use him for breeding purposes, we just want an easy going guy to look over our hens. My kids would also like to show him next summer at the 4H poultry show so he’ll be adored and well cared for. Local is best, no more than 20 miles from Longmont, CO would be great. Thanks!

If it were me and I was looking for a flock guardian I'd look for a more agile, vigilant rooster than a docile, easy going rooster.
In vigilance there is no comparison between a Cochin and most any Mediterranean class rooster.
That's just me. To each his own.

True, but we are looking for a cockerel that can keep a good social hierarchy in the flock. At the moment we have one squeaky little bantam rooster that picks on everyone else, and we need someone to put him in his place if you know what I mean. ;)
