    Did you try the Cochin Club??? Here is a link to their breeders directory....the very first breeder is in Crawfordsville, Indiana;

    http://www.cochinsint.com/uploads/8/8/2/1/8821267/ci_directory_ads_only.pdf

    or try this link, it is an older directory but might still be of help;

    or maybe this guy can help you;

    I am not a breeder, but I have some standard cochin hens (2 blacks and a blue) and I live near New Castle, Indiana. I would like to find a source nearby where I could buy a cochin rooster and a couple hens. My rooster was killed this fall and my hens are getting too old to lay.

    I love the cochin looks and disposition, but I have had a tough time finding any locally. I don't need show quality, just a good lookin' friendly type fella and a couple gals.

    Did you try the links in my previous post Hoosiermama??? I'm sure someone might be able to help you in the Cochin club....keep in mind it's better to buy better quality birds up front if you intend to breed them in the future!:)

    Hi Jeff,

    I have not tried to contact those folks yet. I was on a mission to find a rooster before Christmas, then got caught up in the holidays and the frigid temps and snow have kinda squelched my motivation, temporarily!! I think once the weather starts to warm up a tad, I'll resume my search. I guess I would like to have a better quality bird if they're not outrageously priced. My husband seems to think I'm silly to drive more than 20-30 min. to get a chicken so that's probably gonna be my biggest challenge!!

    I do plan to contact the folks you listed 'cos it's probably a good place to start!

    Thanks!!
