- Golden Laced Cochin Bantam
The experienced breeders at Cackle Hatchery® are proud to introduce our Gold Cochin Bantams, a unique chicken breed that is a miniature version of the Standard Cochin chicken. These chickens were admitted into the American Poultry Standard of Perfection from 1874 to 1977, and the reasons are clear. Not only do they have a beautiful appearance, but these birds behave very well. The Golden Cochin Bantam features gorgeous black and golden brown feathers, and we have baby chicks available to order today. For more details about this Cochin Bantam variety, contact Cackle Hatchery®!
Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the standard version of the breed, the Golden Laced Cochin Chicken.

not miniature cochin I expected Review by Lin
I wonder if my order was confused? I have given these 6 month old chickens to my daughter as these are huge in comparison to the rest of my cochin breeds. Nice chickens, nice demeanor and coloring, expect nice sized eggs, just too big for my flock. (Posted on 12/1/2019)
needs more brreding work Review by farmer john
These birds I do have to give them credit for really well pattern of Golden Laced but they ate a bit leggy and don't have enough width through the body very narrow and pointed especially the high end and rump and really need for breeding feathering down the leg and shanks. Not show quality at all and pricey for pets. (Posted on 10/31/2019)
Very happy with my golden laced bantam chickens and with Cackle Hatchery. Review by JLD
My 5 golden laced cochin bantams are now 5 months old. They have thrived and developed into beautiful hens. Very gentle and easy to work with. This is the second time I have ordered from Cackle Hatchery. Both times the baby chicks have arrived healthy and strong. (Posted on 10/30/2019)

We are quite satisfied with our birds. They are healthy, robust and quite friendly. More pets than livestock, they are very easy to cate for.

Active and healthy birds Review by Philip
My birds are now 4 months old. One extra bird was sent with my order, but didn't make it, so I got exactly as many as I paid for. The remaining birds arrived healthy, grew quickly, and developed nice variations in their coloring. Some have feathers that are mostly black with a little bit of brown in the center, others are more brown than black. There are different shades of brown as well. They are all friendly, quiet, and will eat from my hand. Surprisingly, they don't seem interested in meal worms, which my previous chickens loved. Favorite treats are corn meal, grasshoppers, and bee pollen. (Posted on 10/29/2019)
Hobbying with our new breed of chicken Review by WallFarms
We received our order of 5 Golden Laced Cochin Bantams almost 3 weeks ago along with 27 other chicks. We are looking forward to watching these grow. They are already making good progress.This is our second order from your hatchery and have been very pleased with each order. My wife and I also attended the festival this past year and enjoyed our time there. Thanks for your hard work in producing good stock. We always share Cackle Hatchery as being the source for our flock. (Posted on 5/7/2018)
Cackle Hatchery Review by Brad & Vicki Texas May 2010
We received them the morning after I wrote you. Chickens are wonderful!! We only had 1 die about 4 hours after we put them in the brooder. I am very happy with Cackle Hatchery. This is the 2nd time we have ordered chickens from you all. We will always do business with you and we will let our friends know. Thank you (Posted on 11/13/2015)
