This is one of the best varieties for the exhibitor as it is quite rare and makes an outstanding show bird. The highly colored male has black hackle and saddle feathers with an edging of rich brilliant red, a lustrous greenish black breast and body touched with reddish bay on the wings. The females are completely different with their brown plumage and distinct pencilings of black following the outline of each feather. These are fairly good sized birds though not quite as large as their cousins, the Barred and White Rocks. The yellow skin and plump body make a nice eating fowl, and the hens lay brown eggs, and are considered one of the best setters and broody hens. The baby chicks are a rick dark brown resembling the color of an expensive fur coat.
As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.
Customer Product Reviews
These baby chickens are AMAZING. I can't wait to show them at the fair next year. They are so beautiful and healthy as can be. Their personality is so fun and the coloring is spot on. Thank you so much!!
We got a mixture of Partridge Rocks, Black Australorps, and Buff Orpingtons. They are wonderful! We can't believe how healthy and happy they are. We've only had them a week and they've grown so much. First time using McMurray Hatchery. I will definately use them again, we are so pleased!!
I purchased my Partridge Rocks last year and will be buying more in the coming spring. These are great birds and several of my hens set this year and hatched out 25 babies! Very gentle birds and easy to raise, I'd recommend them to anyone who wants nice quality brown eggs and great mothers.
We ordered Partridge Rocks and Rhode Island Reds to add to our Barred Rock family. They are so friendly and let the kids pick them up. They are 8 weeks old now and getting big. This is our second time ordering from McMurray and will definitely order again! Thank you for the happy healthy chicks!
We got our chicks, and they are now teenagers. I got a Partridge Rock, and my sister got a Single Comb Brown Leghorn. They are very cute and beautiful. Thank-you, Mcmurray Hatchery!
Thank you so much McMurray! We just picked up our chicks yesterday. They are so cute and fuuny! They will make great pets! Thanks so much!
Your healthy lively chicks arrived in late April and the Partridge Rocks have surprised us all by laying eggs all winter- without extra lighting. I have never had my hens do this before. They are beautiful hens and wonderful winter layers, which is quite unusual for around here (N. Calif.). I am going to do this again this year- order Partridge Rock chicks for late spring in the hopes that it is both the breed and the timing.
My son showed 5 of his Partridge Rocks at the County Fair this summer and got Blue Ribbons on every one of them. We will be ordering more chicks this spring. Thanks you for great chicks.
I ordered 25 of the Partridge Rocks for my son to show in 4-H this year. They are doing great. McMurray Hatchery is by far the best hatchery there is, and they will help you with any question you have. Thank you so much.
I bought white rocks, barred rocks, buff rocks and partridge rocks from McMurray Hatchery in June of 09. They have done extremely well, are beautiful birds with heavy coats of shiny feathers. They are the only chickens in our area who are laying this winter. I have 12 hens and get between 5 and 9 eggs a day. They are also cute and friendly. Very tame. They come when called and even when they aren't called, the come running when they see me. I really love my hens!
We are very pleased with the chicks. They all arrived full of energy and ready to eat and drink. I feel that we had such a great outcome because our post office in Bangor called us on Sunday when they arrived and we picked them up immediately. Out of 105 we have only lost 4, one died in transit. They are eating and drinking well. Thanks.
I order 13 of these beauties last spring and couldn't be happier. They are a wonderful breed, they lay beautiful eggs and are especially fond of shoelaces. They all have their own personality and are very fun to watch interact. Thanks McMurry for such beautiful ladies.
Dear McMurray Hatchery, I ordered a few of these wonderful birds in a larger order last year. Boy do they stand out! They add a special color contrast among white, buff, and black birds. I waited until they were mature and took some to the fair this year. My rooster and hen got two blue ribbons and the rooster got Best of Show! Thanks a lot, Abby Montana 4-Her
I ordered 25 of the Partridge Rocks.When they got here they were all in great shape! They almost jumped right out of the box! McMurray staff were very helpfull with my order and very kind to me. Hope to get lots of eggs. Thanks benny lawrence
