Blue Cochins are a popular choice amongst fanciers, and for good reason! They are of course gentle and sedate - a trait Cochins are well known for. And when this friendly demeanor is gift-wrapped in mounds of soft, lovely feathers of black-laced blue...it's an unbeatable combination!


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 it has been a long journey! Many years of careful breeding and selection have brought them back to their former glory. It's so rewarding to have progressed this far, and also to have that work validated by poultry judges.
