When it comes to rare breed chickens, the professionals at Cackle Hatchery® have a lot to offer. We have more than 200 breeds to choose from, including the Barred Cochin Standard. This bird is one of the many color types of Cochins that we have available and it is notable for several reasons. This is a very large chicken with a lot of unique feathering and feathered legs. This chicken is also great around children, making it a perfect pet for the family farm. This is a very hard color to find of the standard cochin with very few breeders in the USA. We further improved our flock by adding some of Roland Doerr bloodline into our flock in 2009. Make a great show and exhibition type chicken. You can place your order today or you can call us for more information.

Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the miniature version of the breed (bantam), the Barred Cochin Bantam Chicken.

  1. canieldonrad

    Ordered 3 chicks, received 4. Of the three cochin varieties we ordered (Barred, Blue and Partridge) the Barred by far has the most personality. Very comfortable around us and our dogs at only one month old. Curious and active. Coming from a background in poultry breeding I’m VERY impressed with the body structure/head structure of these chicks. These are strong, healthy young birds.

    These fluffy barred cochins arrived today and im absolutely thrilled. BIG chicks with an absolutely voracious appetite. One actually got my finger in its mouth.
    Let yall know how they grow up

    Great Birds

    Great, beautiful, and wonderful mothers. My hen was only about 7 months old and she became broody and hatched out 7 chicks. They are great hens and let’s not forget the roosters! He is very protective of his hens but at the same time, he is very nice and gentle and likes to be held by humans. Great bred for first time chicken owners or if you live in cold areas like colorado

    Beautiful Birds

    Ordered Barred Cochins. I love these birds. Big, sturdy birds that are beautiful, fully feathered down to their feet, and so sweet. Hands down my favorite breed!

    Cust Response

    Just wanted to say that the Standard Golden Laced Cochins and the Standard Barred Cochins I ordered and received back in April are looking just beautiful! Very beautiful chickens, with great feathering! I am pleased with both breeds, and am especially excited about the standard sized Barred Cochins because it was only when I saw them on your list of cochins did I realize that the Barred even existed in the standard size! Thank you again, I would and do recommended your hatchery to my friends and acquaintances.
