Fred is a bantam cochin. We love all our cochins, but Fred is the best rooster. Even though he is a bantam, he is very protective of the whole flock, including the large hens. He is not aggressive toward people, but he is very protective of the hens toward other animals and will do anything to protect them. The description given on here about cochins becoming pets is true: we love Fred!
