Soldiers returning from China brought the first Cochin bantams to England in the 1860’s. They were known as “Pekin” bantams then and are still referred to as “Pekins” in many parts of Europe. Cochins are heavily feathered down the shanks and toes and appear to be much larger than they actually are. They are very gentle, excellent setters, require little space, and with their many color varieties are absolutely beautiful to look at. Cochins are the most popular of the feather legged bantams and one of our best setters. Cochins have a lustrous, greenish black base color with many of the feathers tipped in white - a color contrast that really makes them stand out in a flock.
The Cochin Chicken's most notable feature is the amount of frilly plumage covering the leg and foot or the bird, a characteristic shared by only a few other chicken breeds.
Cochin Bantam Chickens do make excellent mothers and will even mother baby chicks of a different breed, and their docile nature and beautiful fluffy plumage allow them to make great pet chickens.
