RKR POULTRY FARMS BREEDS GOOD SHOW QUALITY BIRDS. wE STAY TRUE TO THE BREED AND COLOR STANDARDS FOR OUR ALL OUR BIRDS.

Cochin chickens are recognized by the APA and ABA. These birds come in bantam and standard. We raise standard (large fowl) Blue Cochins. This Breed has 14 recognized varieties: Barred, Birchen, Black, Blue, Brown, Brown Red, Buff, Columbian, Golden Laced, Mottled, Partridge, Red, Silver Laced, and White.

Well, we originally started out with a Blue Cochin Cockerel and have since given him to a breeding farm over in Oklahoma. We were given Black Cochin eggs to incubate (54 to be exact). Well, luckily only 14 hatched out. We had the electricity go out twice during this incubation period and were blessed to get what we got. Sold a few, gave a few away and kept 6 (4 pullets and 2 cockerels) all of which were black. The black have done wonderful at the poultry shows in 2011 and in spring 2012. The black bloodline comes from Bo Garrett in OK. We added some blue cochins from a show bloodline out of Georgia. We now have a blue pair. We are not breeding them, just keeping them for eggs and for brooding.
