I ordered 5 of these in the early summer. I had 2 deceased upon arrival. ( I was reimbursed) Aside from that, I am very pleased with my hens. They are quiet little ladies but so friendly. They are beautiful. I plan to order more for next year.

These birds are awesome . They are lively from the start unlike to golden laced cochins. The show type bred into these birds is incredible. I have 6 pullets and 3 cockerels that could stand lots of competition. They are also heavy egg layers. So very impressed with them. They should be priced at double the cost!

Beautiful, sweet birds / consistent layers
We brought in barred cochin bantams last spring, and with thoughtful, gentle interaction, they have grown up to be beautiful, friendly, personable birds with very sweet personalities. I have many breeds in my flock, all with their own charm, but I do think these two Barred Cochins are perhaps the sweetest, cuddliest birds I’ve ever had. Highly recommend for a gentle flock. (We have Polish, Silkies, Seramas, Brahmas, Wyandottes, Ameraucanas.) These birds aren’t bullies and would not do well with super aggressive flockmates.
nice breed doing well
Beautiful chickens and fun pets !
We absolutely love our Barred Cochin Bantams! I bought them for my children to raise as beloved pets. They are so beautiful and sweet tempered. They love to be held and fed worms.
Not my favs
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.

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!
We had a great year
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.
