    Do partridge cochin bantams lay well and set and hatch their eggs?

    You will probably get a better response if you post your question in the appropriate forum section.

    But no: cochins are not great layers, they like to set their eggs as soon as they lay their first one....

    My bantam cochins are young and I only have two, but they layed almost daily until they went broody. They took a long time to start laying, I think they were 7 months or so. They layed amost three months and are now both broody [​IMG]
