At Cackle Hatchery®, we offer several different types of the Cochin Bantam, including the Barred Cochin Bantam. If you’re not familiar with this chicken breed, it is a miniature version of the Standard Cochin. For more than a century these chickens were admitted to the American Poultry Standard of Perfection, and they make great pets and mothers for chicks. The standard version of the breed, the Barred Cochin Bantam, is an excellent choice, so place your order today. For more details about the Barred Cochin Chicken, please contact us!
Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the standard version of the breed, theBarred Cochin Chicken.
We bought a few different kinds of bantams and these were definitely my least favorite. One died in transit, one died two days after we got them, one was a rooster, and one is a nice little pullet. We bought sexed females. All-in-all I like the one that we ended up with, but did not like how sickly the rooster and the one that died were. Our other bantams that we received, golden laced Cochin, Rhode island red, and barred Rock, have all been healthy and seem much stronger. (Posted on 7/1/2019)

Just wanted you to know how pleased I am with my chickens from your company. They arrived in great health and have grown into these beauties. Many Thanks! (Posted on 1/11/2016)
We had a great year Review by Fares
We had a great year at county fair. This was our fifth year doing 4-H, but our first year being on the hoetaemsd with 4-H. We have done static (the cooking, rockets, sewing, etc) exhibits before and last year we took 3 meat goats, but we had to keep them a t a friends house for 2 months prior to fair. Last year se moved to a rental house 1 week before fair and didn't get our statics turned in. So this year, now that we have a few acres we got a little carried away and took 38 statics between 3 kids, and we took 3 dairy goats, 5 meat goats, 3 sheep, 6 chickens and 1 rabbit. Whoo! that was probably a bit much! We had a great time and the kids received 100 ribbons, plaques and awards in 4-H and our family got another 15 in open class. We tried a lot of new things and the kids were pleased that for our first year in poultry they got either champion or reserve in showmanship. We found out we don't like sheep, and we like the chickens more than we thought we would. We love 4-H and will be incorporating 4-H projects into our homeschool so that most of the projects are done by June and we don't have the summer scramble to finish and then we can just concentrate on the livestock.
