cochin eggs

23rd of March and we have aquired 9 golden cochin large fowl eggs from some great looking stock in lincolnshire.

Cochin eggs are not that big considering the size of the birds, and the fertility may not be as good as smaller more agile breeds, despite there being 2 cocks in with the 4 hens which supplied the eggs. It will be interesting to see what the hatch rate from these eggs is. We have them in in Hovobator with an automatic turning tray.
