Well, my roos are. The hens can be aloof, but talk about eggs! Even when they were molting and deep in winter I was getting at least 6 eggs a day out of my 12 girls. I hatched out 7 last fall and so far the three roos I got are super friendly, the hens are incredibly funny and more like puppies. I'm selling a friend 20+ eggs because they like my stock so much. I like them for their size and hardiness too, my roos average 10/12 pounds, hens around 9. Never had a problem health wise, free range really well. Bu don't expect the hatchery stock to go broody, ain't happening. If I were you go with a local breeder or order from a small reputable farm that KNOWS their birds.

Great. I FINALLY made up my mind and ordered some large breed Buff Cochin eggs. Wanted broody, good laying hens and the best stock I could find that would fit ALL my requirements were the c's. Found an excellent source you guys should check out!
This lady has it goin on, and the funny thing is she's only 50 miles from me as the crow files:

^^^you know on the BYC so many people were saying how much there cochins were laying really well. That's why I thought we should get them. But now we aren't getting anything. :(

Thats the problem. They don't want pets. We have 7 chickens already. They are pretty loving as chickens go. They also want good layers. They want the chicken to raise the chicks. Not us. So until we get a broody or they change their mind we can't get any. I even found fertilized eggs.

Much better choice for egg laying!

I love my cochins (whats not to love about a giant cuddly, fluffy chicken?) but dang are they horrid layers!

Cochins are my favorite breed for looks and docility. They do lay, but not over generously, maybe 2 or 3 eggs/bird/week in high season. The EE's shoot 'em out, I start calling those girls Machine Gun Katie when they're really dropping them. I love the Orps too, cute lil fluffy butts!
