Bantam Cochins

These are such fun and personable birds!  Our youngest son got his first bantam cochins 2 years ago.  The have great personalities and are so soft and fluffy it makes them a very popular choice for children.  The only problem we've had with them is the males don't get along at all...so as soon as the male chicks start nearing maturity you have to separate them to keep them from fighting.  Kind of funny since they look like perfectly harmless fluff balls!
