Buff Cochin RoosterBuff Cochin: Buff Cochins are truly spectacular birds with mounds of soft, downy feathers of pure gold. It was the Buff Cochins which first introduced this amazing color to America in 1845 and kicked off the world-wide "Cochin Craze." I AM NO LONGER BREEDING THIS VARIETY
Blue Orpington pullet-Hawthorn HillBlue Cochin: The color blue in poultry is glamorous, but rather difficult to maintain while keeping hold of the other important breed characteristics. So it has been especially rewarding to have my Blue Cochins now taking champion awards at large shows.

Black Cochin RoosterBlack Cochin: These majestic birds must be actually seen to be fully appreciated! Their ink-black feathers gleam with green iridescence while combs and wattles provide ruby red accents. They are grand, elegant and equally impressive whether in the yard, or at the most prestigious shows. :: READ MORE::
