Have you been searching for a unique bird for your home or farm? At Cackle Hatchery® we offer several varieties of the standard size Cochin, a docile bird that was first introduced to America in the 1800s. This Blue Cochin Standard has a blue tint to its feathers, but it’s also notable for its large size and fluff of feathering and feathered legs. You can expect this breed to lay small or medium sized eggs, and the hens do well raising chicks and going broody. We added some new bloodline to our Cackle Hatchery flock in 2009 from Roland Doerr to maintain their size and vigor. Please read the link below about splash/blue color breeding. You can place your order for the Blue Cochin Standard baby chicks today or give us a call for additional information.

Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the miniature version of the breed, the Blue Cochin Bantam Chicken

    I received my Cackle Hatchery Blue Cochin hen as a gift from a friend. She lays an egg almost every day, even in freezing weather (when not sitting eggs), and last summer she raised 2 clutches of chicks. She was an excellent mother.

    Blue Cochin

    So happy Cackle Hatchery chicks are sold at my local Farm&Fleet. Normal I order from another hatchery because I can order sexed birds but Cackle saved me this year as the other hatchery was sold out of my Blues, 2 months ago. I had a racoon ransack my coop killing all but 1 of my Blue girls early this spring. Thanks for the save Cackle Hatchery, these Blue Cochinsare my favorite and I’ve been raising birds since I was little!!!

    Blue Cochins

    We ordered our blue Cochin chicks this past spring and we ended up with a hen and a rooster. They are beautiful and healthy! The rooster is absolutely stunning and actually has a friendly demeanor! Cackle Hatchery has never let us down so it is no surprise this breed did not disappoint.

    Beautiful Birds

    I ordered 10 straight run. I ended up with 3 roosters. 4 black hens and 3 blue hens. The birds arrived healthy with lots of energy and have not slowed down. They are big and beautiful. I didn’t buy them for their eggs. But they are now laying consistently at 7 months old. If you are looking for a comical bird with lots of personality that will crack you up when they try to run, these are your girls. They are a wonderful addition.

    Wonderful, beautiful birds

    We ordered 15 Blue Cochins last spring. They all arrived safely and healthy. It is several months later now and they are mature and laying eggs. Beautiful coloring and very docile. Will order again!

    Beautiful chickens

    I ordered 3 standard blue Cochin chickens as straight runs and ended up with 3 hens. They are the most beautiful chickens that I have ever seen. Cackle Hatchery’s stock is superb. Their temperament is the best. They are calm and not very vocal. They are friendly to us humans and other chickens. I would definitely recommend this breed to everyone.

    I just wanted to say thanks for my chicks.

    I just wanted to let you know that I received my chicks today, and they are healthy active, adorable little darlings. I’m very happy with your service and will be a great repeat customer when I need more chicks.
