Gorgeous birds! Review by Dawn
Couldn't be more happy with the cochin breed. They have turned into beautiful birds. Great addition to any flock! (Posted on 12/23/2019)
Love these birds Review by Sam
I love my Cochins! They are so sweet, easy to handle. I ordered the assortment and got a good variety, I believe we have 4 colors. These birds are almost a year old now. They arrived healthy and have stayed that way. I will order again. (Posted on 12/12/2019)

Grand champion Review by Mrs.fitz
I ordered cochin, silkies, spitzhauben, polish, and easter Eggers. I was happy with all of my birds. My daughter took a female polish, silkie, and male cochin and golden laced spitzhauben to fair and got two blue ribbons and two grand champion ribbons. All of my day old chicks are now 8 months old healthy and laying. I lost one in transport but they shipped three extra. I lost one the day after they arrived. I was shocked they did so well shipping so young. (Posted on 12/10/2019)
