The Splash Cochin Standard chicken has feathered legs and fluffy gray feathers with black spots. Thanks to an abundance of feathers, these chickens do better in cool weather than in a warm climate.
They are good foragers. And the hens have a well deserved reputation for being excellent setters and wonderful mothers.
Splash Cochin Standards come from breeding two Blue Cochin Standards together. About one-third of the chicks will be splash. Breeding splash to splash also results in splash chicks, although future generations will gradually become lighter in color.
Cochins are among the calmest and friendliest chicken breeds. That is why they are so popular as backyard pets, especially for families with children. A smaller version of the Splash Cochin Standard is the Splash Cochin Bantam, also available here at Chickens for Backyards.
