Another pinner wrote: My favorite breed of chicken - Cochins. They come in standard & bantam sizes. The bantams are excellent sitters. Both sizes are easily domesticated & make loving pets for the children or yourself.
Cochins have excessive plumage that cover the legs and feet. The skin beneath the feathers is yellow and the egg color is light brown. Eggs are also medium in size. Standard weight is 11 lb for a rooster, and 9 lb for a hen.
