    "Good Breed" is a very relative description.

    Good for what? laying eggs, going broody, raising a clutch, eating, for raising in hot climates, etc?

    Quote:I think the poster was referring to the feathering on the feet/legs. At least that's what I got out of it... Plus, Cochins are an all around good bird.

    d'Uccles are my personal favorite! Though not as feather-footed as a Cochin.​

    mississippifarmboy collects slightly damaged strays

    Sultans are pretty good layers and have super wide feathered feet. A bit small, so really only good as an ornamental breed. If I don't forget, I'll post a picture of ours tomorrow.
    BTW, I've never noticed our Cochin bantams picking on each other, but the standards do untill they get the pecking order established.
