Chocolate: A pale to dark cocoa color. Very pretty but off-types are common. (Available in Assortments Only)
Old English bantams are small, adorable birds, but seem to have a feast or famine reliability with the chick supply. All lay slightly off-white eggs and have a small single comb with five points. We also have several other colors of Old English which we are studying. They may also show up in the mixes.
Black Old English: Slim, feisty in temperament, very small, pure black in color. APA. (Available in Assortments Only)
Black Breasted Red Old English: Color pattern is similar to Red Dorkings and Brown Leghorns where the male is black breasted and reddish color and the female is brownish with a salmon/orange chest. APA. (Available in Assortments Only)
Chocolate Old English: A beautiful, chocolate (dark brown) colored version of Old English. With all chocolate birds, off-color types occur. These tend to be chocolate with red in the hackles and the saddles. Non-APA. (Available in Assortments Only)
Silver Duckwing Old English: Males are one color and females are another. See Silver Grey Dorking description. APA. (Available in Assortments Only)
Spangled Old English: Spangled (Speckled Sussex) pattern. (Available in Assortments Only)
Cochins are excellent setters and mothers. All cochins are built low to the ground and are loose feathered birds with feathered feet. Most can be easily made into pets. All lay very pale brown eggs and have medium sized single combs with five points. Because of their gentle nature, the Cochin bantams are very good for first time chicken handlers to work with (especially first year 4-Hers).
Barred Cochin: Barred black and white. Barring tends to be less defined than in a Barred Rock. It is much more of a Cuckoo pattern. APA. (Available in Assortments Only)
Black Cochin: Pure black, having a greenish sheen in the light. APA. (Available in Assortments Only)
Blue Cochin: Deep blue color. (See Glossary on the Poultry Catalog Page for the "Blue Genetics" explanation.) APA. (Available in Assortments Only)
Buff Cochin: Soft, gentle buff color, tame and easy to raise. APA. (Available in Assortments Only)
Red Cochin: Deep, rich red. They are friendly and pleasant, very thrifty and easy to raise. APA. (Available in Assortments Only)
