    I don't know the answer since I don't know that much about cochins. Here's a *bump*

    Our LF cochins were the last to lay. They were about 10-11 months old. They do lay fairly well, but I got them to go in my flock for sheer cuteness.

    My cochin was hatched around May 24, 2010 and she started laying in late January. She lays 4-5 eggs a week now. Nice light brown eggs. Don't know about the roos, sorry.
