Cackle Hatchery® is proud to offer the Black Cochin Standard, just one of the many types of Cochin we have available. This is an interesting poultry breed that first arrived in the country around 1845. The name actually refers to the fact that the bird is a Chinese Shanghai Fowl, and there are many reasons why you may want to have some on your property. Not only do they get along well with children, but they are great for raising chicks. These chickens lay small to medium sized brown eggs, and this variety is notable for its dark black coloring. Order yours today and make sure you contact us if you have any questions for the Cackle Hatchery® team!
They have to be very carefully protected, I lost many to a raccoon one night. And I had mine on my carport! Moved to the barn, they just bloomed into the most beautiful feathered ladies. I am ordering more this year, so I can get a rooster to keep for them. When they run, they look like little sumo wrestlers! Hilarious! Not as friendly as I would like, but they will come to food and I don't mind since they lay eggs consistently in the henhouse (not the bushes)! (Posted on 2/24/2016)
You Rock!! Review by Lori North Carolina February 2015
A few weeks ago I placed an order with some of your competition. They shipped 20 babies without a heat pack and all 20 arrived sadly dead. Of course they offered to replace them, so I have more coming next week. But I also ordered 20 babies from you and Yay!!! all of them got here in good condition and very healthy. You have my business, forever and ever!!! Never again will i order from other hatcheries. Chickie love to you! (Posted on 11/12/2015)
