Blue Cochins are a rare treasure, prized for their calm, gentle nature and then gift-wrapped in mounds of soft feathers. The dramatic pattern of black-laced blue completes the package.


Standard-sized Blue Cochins suffered the fate of so many historic breeds and varieties - there had not been enough serious, long term breeders raising them in large enough numbers to retain breed strengths and characteristics. I started my strain of Blue Cochins from hatchery bloodlines in 2003, so this has been a long journey! Many years of careful breeding and rigorous selection have paid off, and the results are lovely! It's so rewarding to have progressed this far, and also to have this work validated by poultry judges.
