Cochin – Buff

£56.00

This large fowl version of the Cochin, originating from China is one of the biggest/broadest chickens available today, having a covering of feathers to it’s legs and feet, it’s body is just like a giant fluff ball, a true ‘teddy bear’ bird, once tame makes a great pet and ideal for children. (Always consider the space available when buying the larger birds) Hardy in winter due to it’s dense coat of feathers, but needs plenty of shade in the summer. If free ranging, these birds are not wonderers and are content to remain close to home. They are virtual non-flyers so perches should be kept low. Generally not kept for egg production, but lay a reasonable approx. 170 light brown eggs per year. (mostly medium sized, don’t expect giant eggs from this giant bird!)

    You can simply call into our farm (during our opening hours) to have a look or buy birds.  You can also reserve birds through our website for collection from the farm.  Reservations are made against breed types and not specific birds, so you are still able to choose the birds yourself when you collect.  Making a reservation ensures we keep that number of the chosen breed for you.  Once we have received your order, we will check the stock levels and contact you to confirm their availability. If any of the birds ordered are not available in the current flock, we will let you know when we will next have them and if this is not acceptable then we will issue a full refund of your deposit.

    When purchasing poultry from us please either bring your own carrier, alternatively, our cardboard boxes or carriers are available to purchase on our website, pre-ordered with your birds or in our shop.

    If you have not placed an order or have not received our confirmation, please contact us before making a special trip to our farm to avoid any possible disappointment.
