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. They are poor layers, but good setters and beautiful show birds.

Buff Cochins - Ratings and Reviews
Excellent sweet lovesWe are so very pleased with our whole order from Mcmurray
We got many colors of Cochins to add to our flock (it's our preferred breed) but I have to say the buffs are if the most gentle temperament ,they live attention and even though we received (2) unexpected males we just adore them!
They're so gentle my lil nephew (3) can pick them up with ease!
I would recommend mcmurray to anyone wanting high quality and very healthy birds!
The PantaloonsWe had two males (ordered two straight runs. Whenever we ordered straight runs, we always got males, and always got extra males McMurray wanted to get rid of with every order). Anyway Lyle and LaVelle were beautiful, but moody, sad, inactive, and kind of a joke. However the other chickens loved to hide under them. LaVelle and Lyle always had to play "Mother" to them, whether they wanted to or not! My son said that their motto was, "Life sucks!" Also, when one of them began limping (his whole rest of his life) my son said, "Life gave him the short end of the paddle."
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.
