Standard Cochin take a bit longer to mature to egg laying. Anywhere from 5-6 mos old... need to be patient. As far as Roosters.. I would probably say around the same. Although the boys always think they can take care of business early.. LOL

If they are exhibition quality, they may be 7-8 months before they lay. Hatchery stock will lay sooner in general.
