    I am wanting Cochins to hatch some Ameraucana and New Hampshire eggs. Which color is best for the job, and should I buy from hatchery? Thank You!

    I used to breed Cochins, and they all went broody. I would pick the color that you like best, or get an assortment of colors for fun. You could buy from a breeder, or hatchery. Just, do not expect quality poultry (by quality...I mean for exhibition) from a hatchery.
