Sweethearts Review by Smith
We received 6 buff Cochin bantams three of which turned out to be roosters. All chicks were in good health and arrived swiftly. The buff Cochin bantams are the sweetest most calm chickens. Our toddler loves carrying them and taking them for rides in her stroller. I noticed early on to that two of the roosters had bad hips. They were raised on sawdust so I don't think it was from slipping. We ended up keeps the one with really bad hips because I didn't want him used for breeding incase it is a genetic defect. He looks a bit awkward getting around but seems happy. This breed is our favorite of the ones we ordered. (Posted on 10/29/2019)
Our Sweet, Tough Little Man Review by Mowglimommychick
We love our boy Durango! He runs around and will take on any roos that mess with him, but he's sweet with us. He is a satisfying little chunk to pick up and carry around. He inspired us to get more cochins in different colors. Great breed! (Posted on 10/28/2019)

Customer Satisfaction Review by Jo Ann New York April 2014
Recently, I received an order of chicks that I had called in. They arrived the next day! It was so good to see that all strong and healthy. They will be a week old tomorrow. All is going well. I live so far North in New York state that when shipments take 3 or 4 days the birds do not do well. I hope that this speed can be used again when I order. Thank you for healthy birds and getting them here by next day. (Posted on 11/5/2015)
