’Nagoya Cochin'


'Nagoya Cochin' is the domestic commercial chicken that was first developed in Japan. In 1868, the Kaihu brothers, samurais of Owari feudal clan (at present, western part of Aichi prefecture), improved their native breed chicken of Nagoya by mating it to the Chinese buff cochin. Then it was named 'Nagoya' in 1920.

Though 'Nagoya cochin' was originally a dual purpose breed (i.e. good in both egg laying and meat production), today there are four types of 'Nagoya Cochin';type 1 and 4 for egg, type 2 and 3 for meat.


Their characteristics are brown plumage and leaden legs. Mature cock weights as much as five kolograms.

 We are producing and selling the 'Nagoya Cochin' that is the pure breed made in Aichi prefecture, from chicks to dressed meat.

We are breeding them with low protein and low calories special mixed feed (animal protein free) added with vitamins and natural minerals. And we don't give them any antibiotics.

We are breeding them in a condition of 10-15 hens or cocks per 3.3u, for 140-160 days, in a relaxed mood in an orchard area of Kasugai City. (Cf. in broiler, 40-50 henns or cocks per 3.3u, for 50-60 days)

And our policy is to sell only fresh hens'meat that include more inosinic acid which is one of the umami (i.e. tastiness) elements.
