Thinking about adding some cochins to my flock...... Would they make a nice sized meat bird?

    I have never seen a cochin in real life, but on the mcmurray hatchery catalog it said they were like 10lbs ! So I was wondering if I bred a cochin rooster with some of my layers (BO, EE, white leghorns, sussex, etc.) would the offspring make a good meat bird? Do you think the pullets would be nice layers ?
    Thanks !
