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. A very popular variety that has a very soft golden buff color throughout. One of the oldest and most established varieties of cochins.
As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.

Customer Product Reviews
My buff cochins are doing excellent. I ordered them in early Spring, and they are doing so well here in Canada.
I just ordered 5 Buff Cochins at the beginning of the month. They were happy and very healthy. They are very nice birds. I even received a free one. I was worried about the shipping into Canada but it was great. I will be ordering from Murry McMurray hatchery again soon. Keep up the great work.
I had ordered 6 buff cochins, and when they came they were the so pretty. They are five months old and lay beautifull, small eggs. I love my bantams and will order again soon!
I got a couple Buff Cochin Bantams and they were great. They were all very gentle and calm. You could walk right up to them and they would literaly jump in your arms. Thanks for the great chickens McMurray.
