Females have the typical partridge pattern with dark reddish brown feathers penciled in black. Brought from China in the days of the clipper ships, they were highly prized in New England for their show qualities and as valuable setting hens.

Customer Product Reviews
First time getting day old babies, and I orderd 11 Partridge Cochin hens, and 1 cockerel .Hand fed and picked up regularly, our rooster became the star of the flock! SUPER GOOD natured and danced with the ladies. we just lost him to a bobcat during a day out, when I left my post for a few minutes. The girls are lost without him. Learned my lesson the hard way. So excited to try again this spring! GREAT BREED!!!
I have never had chickens until now. My neighbor and I ordered chicks from you this Feb (2011). The mystery chick, which I kept turned out to be a Partridge Cochin rooster. He is only 4 months old in this picture. He just keeps getting prettier and prettier every day. He takes very good care of his girls and has a magnificent crow. I am so glad I got chickens and very thankful to McMurray for providing such healthy chicks.
Partridge Cochins are very big and gentle. My Grampie has them, and I hatched his hens' eggs. My rooster Henry is very big and pretty. He is an orange red color and his dad is dark red. The prettiest rooster of them all though was probably Colors, a big and friendly rooster my Grampie got as a free exotic chick, which got us set on Cochins. The hens are gentle as well and very pretty. Thank you, McMurray Hatchery for producing such healthy and gentle chicks.
I love Cochins so much! They are very nice and friendly. There eggs are yummy, and large. I have three and all are beautiful a sweet. I recommend these lovely chickens to everyone. Claire
Last year, I bought three Partridge Cochins, and they are the best chickens that I have ever had. They have excellent temperment, they are superior mothers, and they are good egg layers, when they're not trying to sit. Try 'um, you'll like 'um!
Cochins are some the nicest chickens ever! They are wonderful setters. The roosters are firm with my hens and protect them from coyotes, but they are nice to people. Sam Rosenthal
I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT THE PARTRIDGE COCHINS ARE THE GREATEST. MY SON ZEKE RAISED THE ONES WE GOT FROM YOU AT THE COUNTY FAIR. HE WON RESERVE CHAMPION WITH HIS PAIR. THANKS
