    Any kind of Cochin! They are the sweetest and friendliest of all chickens I have had.

    What's your intent on having them? Eggs? Meat? Pets? Show?

    Cochins show very well. They are 1 of only 2 breeds that have feathered feet and are super easily handled.

    Didn't realize that! I had read somewhere that only Cochins and Brahmas have feathered feet. I suppose I meant fully feathered feet. I know of several others with sort of partially feathered feet, like Salmon Faverolles and Langshans. What other breeds have fully feathered feet? Thanks!

    Silkie's, sultan's, and some bantams as well with feathered feet like mille fleur d'uccle,
     
  10. I say Cochins, they are very sweet and beautiful hens. Get Blue Cochins!
