Black Cochins
The Cochin varieties date back to the 1870's. Black Cochins have fluffy, downy plumage giving them a somewhat massive, bulky appearance. They are a beautiful coal-black color.

Feather Footed Fancies
A collection of the fascinating large breeds which have feathered shanks and toes and very fluffy plumage giving a massive appearance.

Black Langshan
Black Langshans are also from the Asiatic Class of poultry and are a pure breed that originated in China many years ago. These large stunning birds are pure glossy black with bright red combs, dark eyes, and black shanks.

Partridge Cochins
These are handsome, massive fowl of the Asiatic class and gorgeously colored. Males' hackle and saddle feathers are almost orange-red with black centers. Females have the typical partridge pattern with dark reddish brown feathers penciled in black.

Blue Cochins

This stately, gentle variety is very rare and extremely beautiful. The bluish-slate color is striking in Cochins.


Salmon Faverolles
It is good sized with a beard, muff, feathered shanks, and 5th toe. The male is colored in straw, reddish brown and black; the female a creamy white and salmon brown. Baby chicks are creamy white with muff, fuzzy legs, and 5th toe.

Buff Brahmas
These have the same large size and quiet temperament of the other Brahmas. They were developed much later, however, and are still very rare. The color pattern is the same as the Light Brahma except that the white sections are replaced by golden buff.

Silver Laced Cochins
This variety is quite new and very rare with the typical silver laced plumage and color pattern.

Buff Cochins
These massive Asiatic fowl are covered with an extraordinary abundance of soft, fluffy, golden buff feathers from tip to toe. They were introduced from China in the mid 1800's, known as Shanghais, and created a sensation wherever shown.

White Cochins
One of the old Cochin varieties. These are like giant "snowballs", with masses of soft, white, downy plumage. They are beautiful birds of quiet disposition and outstanding for exhibition.

Dark Brahmas
Large gentle chickens like the Light Brahmas. Striking plumage color in black and silvery white for males and beautiful silver penciled steel gray for females. Developed from Asiatic fowl brought to New England by China clipper ships in the last century.

White Langshan
White Langshans are a large stately appearing chicken. Originating in China, these beautiful birds are pure white when mature with dark brown eyes and slatey blue shanks. The chicks are dark gray to smoky white.
