    Agrees with COCHINS!! The japs can tend to be a little flighty.. All my cochins have been great layers, broody's and pets!

    Japs! I am not one for feather legged chickens. Its just a personal taste, but if it were me, thats what I'd do.

    Both if you can... I have two buff Japs and when my one girl went broody, the other stopped laying eggs too. So I agree with the flighty part but boy they sure are pretty!

    Both! [​IMG] Never had Japs, but I know that Cochins are great pets, layers, and brooders. We have a small Bantam Cochin pullet and she's so small and cute! [​IMG] About to get a little rooster for her, too. [​IMG]

    I really like Japs more then Cochins. I would have some myself if it wasn't for me already having sooo many breeds to deal with as it is.
