Valley Hatchery offers the charming White Cochin Standard Chicks, a breed steeped in history and known for their captivating presence. Originating from China’s Shanghai province in 1840, the Cochin breed played a pivotal role in the 19th-century “Hen Fever,” a craze for chicken breeds in the United States and England. These birds, having been further refined in the U.S., are celebrated globally for their stunning appearance.

These White Cochin Chicks boast a striking bright white plumage that is sure to be a visual delight. Not only are they a treat for the eyes, but their sweet, gentle nature makes them ideal companions, especially for families seeking a pet-friendly breed. Their amiable personalities, coupled with their attractive features, make them a splendid addition to any backyard.

Cochin chickens, first brought to the U.S. in the 1840s, quickly became a favorite due to their impressive size and luxurious, fluffy feathers. The White Cochin variety was officially recognized by the American Poultry Association in 1874. These birds are not just beautiful; they are also nurturing mothers, often exhibiting strong brooding instincts, which make them excellent caregivers for their young.

While primarily cherished as ornamental pets, White Cochins are also practical. They lay around 110-160 medium to large brown eggs annually and can be raised for meat, given their substantial size. Adult roosters typically weigh around 11lbs, with hens at about 8.5lbs. Originating in Asia, they are well-adapted to colder climates, thanks to their dense feathering. It’s essential, however, to keep their living area dry to protect their feathered feet from frostbite.

In conclusion, Valley Hatchery’s White Cochin Standard Chicks are more than just poultry; they are a blend of beauty, history, and utility. If you’re seeking to enrich your backyard with these friendly, stunning birds, place your order online and await their arrival at your local Post Office.
