We are taking prepaid orders for chicks to hatch in the spring.
Chicks for mail order need to be in multiples of 25. This ensures sufficient body heat for the chicks to survive their journey. Feel free to mix and match smaller quantities of the different breeds. But, the total number of chicks ordered must equal 25, 50, 75 or 100.
***Day old Mottled Cochin Bantam chicks are $10/chick.
All chicks sell as straight run.
Pick up at the farm for a smaller prepaid hatch is also available.
Chicks are shipped weekly on Mondays or Tuesdays. Unfortunately, we cannot provide estimates as to when your chicks will ship. All orders will be filled in the order they are received. You will be contacted via phone when your chicks ship. That will give you 24-48 hours notice. If you have any "black out" dates, indicate them in the "Notes" section during check out and we will not ship your order those weeks.
Please confirm your order via email or by phone.
Please include your name, address and phone number in the email.
If you are paying with PayPal, please confirm that your telephone number and address in your email receipt is current. If it is not current, the U.S. Post Office will not be able to call you when your chicks arrive. And, I will not be able to contact you. It won't end well for the chicks. You will get an email confirmation after you place your order. Please look at the address and phone number on your order to confirm that it is correct. Thank you!
It is up to our hens and how they are laying during that time. Orders are filled on a first come first serve basis.

|Info: ||This gorgeous Cochin Bantam is loveable and full of personality. They have eye catching color with the look at me attitude and posture. |
Soldiers returning from China brought the first Cochin bantams to England in the 1860’s. They were known as “Pekin” bantams then and are still referred to as “Pekins” in many parts of Europe. Cochins are heavily feathered down the shanks and toes and appear to be much larger than they actually are. They are very gentle, excellent setters, require little space, and with their many color varieties are absolutely beautiful to look at. Cochins are the most popular of the feather legged bantams and one of our best setters. Cochins have a lustrous, greenish black base color with many of the feathers tipped in white - a color contrast that really makes them stand out in a flock.
The Cochin Chicken's most notable feature is the amount of frilly plumage covering the leg and foot or the bird, a characteristic shared by only a few other chicken breeds.
Cochin Bantam Chickens do make excellent mothers and will even mother baby chicks of a different breed, and their docile nature and beautiful fluffy plumage allow them to make great pet chickens.
