Cackle Hatchery® is proud to offer the Black Cochin Standard, just one of the many colors of standard 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. We added some new bloodline from Roland Doerr to our flocks in 2009 to do some improvements to their size. Order yours today and make sure you contact us if you have any questions for the Cackle Hatchery® team!
Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the miniature version of the breed, the Black Cochin Bantam Chicken.

Newbie Note: There are some white feathers in their 1st and 2nd stage feathering which is normal but by the 6th month they are solid black feathers.
