These are handsome, massive fowl of the Asiatic class and gorgeously colored. Males' hackle and saddle feathers are almost orange-red with black centers. 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.

Partridge Cochins - Ratings and Reviews
Partridge CochinsI had only one that was not doing well when they arrived. McMurray Hatchery was great, they credited my account for the cost. I was definitely satisfied and will order again.
SkittishFeathered out and eat bugs around the yard well. Too skittish for my interests though. They are noisy and panic quickly when isolated in an open or forested area. One always seems to be in a state of lost emergency even though there is another 10 ft from it in clear sight. The first night they arrived one died because they piIe up on each other in panic. I hope they taste good. Won't buy again.
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.
