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.

  1. s.kress

    Meant to give a 3 star rating on my previous review, not a 4 star. 3 star because they are healthy and pretty but only 3 stars due to the sexing screw up.

  2. s.kress

    Beautiful chicks, healthy. Bought as a gift for my daughter who loves the Golden Laced.
    Ordered 3 pullets and unfortunately received 3 cockerels.
    Realize it’s not 100% accuracy but it is discouraging to place an order for sexed chicks (pullets) and end up with males. Being a small order and having to pay the extra $20.00 I would hope that I wasn’t paying for males that I have no use for.
    My other orders from Cackle were spot on in their sexing but I have to say they were all auto-sexed breeds so am not sure if vent sexer had an “off” day this time or someone pulled these Golden Laced from the wrong box.

    So sorry Lin

    not miniature cochin I expected

    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.

    needs more brreding work

    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.

    Very happy with my golden laced bantam chickens and with Cackle Hatchery.

    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.

  7. chick

    Purchased a cockerel and 4 pullets for my daughter.She showed them in our small county fair and won champion bantam with the cockerel. sweet birds.

    Nice birds

  8. Rusty

    Wonderful birds

    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.

  9. Philip

    Active and healthy birds

    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.

    Hobbying with our new breed of chicken

    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.

    Cackle Hatchery

    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
