The Partridge Cochin Bantam
The Partridge Cochin is a small, feather footed breed of chicken which will make an excellent for a pet backyard chicken or for show. The Partridge Cochin tends to be docile in nature, usually does not mind being gently handled, and from our experience this breed is very intelligent.
The males are very colorful and ornate, proudly displaying saddle and hackle fears which a beautiful bright orange-red, their body is usually greenish-black.
The female Partridge Cochin Bantam has a mahogany, glossy looking brown feathers which appear to be pencil outlined in black.
Origin: First reported to be seen in England during the 1960's
Feather legged bantams
Male Mature Weight: 32 oz.
Female Mature Weight: 28 oz.
Comb Type: Single
Broodiness: The Partridge Cochin hens tend to be excellent egg setter's and highly protective mother's over their brood.
Egg Color: Brown
The lovely yet regal Partridge Bantam is a welcome addition to any flock however they should be kept with bantam breeds only as larger breeds often pick or dominate smaller breeds
Due to the fact that they are feather footed you will need to keep their run very clean as they can develop infections in their feet easily from feces build up trapped between the feathers on their toes.
