The Silver Laced Cochin originates from China and was originally named Chinese Shanghai or Cochina China. First exported to America in the 19th century, the cochin helped to lead the “fancy” chicken movement. These birds lay only a few eggs a week but are good sized and have great meat. They are great moms and will sit on eggs and take great care of their chicks. They are fairly docile and tend to make good pets!
