*WATCH* It is doubtful that any other single breed of chicken has inspired more people to keep poultry as a hobby or fancy. When the Cochin chicken made its debut outside of China it was met with astonishment, wonder, and awe. The eggs of the Cochin are extremely large, and the majority of them come during the winter. Noted for extremely getle dispositions. Males are seldom aggressive or even quarrel. Brown eggs. Because they don't fly, they will require low roosts.
