    My opinion is for the Cochins also.
    They can cover more eggs too, since they are so fluffy!

    Im going to say OEGBs too. My cochins never were really reliable broodies, but once you give an OEGB eggs, you need a pry bar to get her off of them! And they are PROTECTIVE mothers too.

    cochins cover more eggs, are broodier but OEG are more protective mothers. So I they are going to be around cats, use OEG's. No predators and in a protected area go w/cochins.
