Valley Hatchery’s Barred Cochin Standard Chicks are a delightful addition to any backyard or family farm. Originating from the Shanghai province of China in 1840, these chickens, initially known as “Shanghai” birds and later as “Cochin-Chinas,” played a significant role in the mid-1800s “Hen Fever” in the United States and England. Their development in the U.S. has made them a worldwide sensation, especially for their stunning looks.

The Barred Cochin Chickens, recognized by the American Standard of Perfection in 1982, are a sight to behold with their striking black and white barred feathers. This ornamental breed is not only a showstopper but also known for its friendly nature, making them great pets, especially around children. They lay about 110-160 medium brown eggs per year, balancing ornamental beauty with practical egg production.

These large chickens, with roosters weighing around 11 lbs and hens about 8.5 lbs, boast unique feathering and feathered legs, adding to their distinctive appearance. They are part of the prestigious Asiatic Class in poultry shows, showcasing their grandeur and elegance. Known for their tendency to go broody, these chickens can live for 8-10 years, offering a long-term companionship. Choose the Barred Cochin Standard Chicks from Valley Hatchery for a mix of historical intrigue, stunning appearance, and family-friendly nature.
