Valley Hatchery is thrilled to present the Partridge Cochin Bantam Chicks, a stunning breed that brings a touch of wild elegance to your backyard. These chickens are renowned for their striking feather patterns, making them a dazzling choice for both poultry enthusiasts and those looking for a unique pet.
The males of this variety are particularly eye-catching, with their reddish-orange hackle and saddle feathers, each adorned with a distinct black center. The females, on the other hand, boast a classic Partridge pattern, featuring dark reddish-brown feathers intricately penciled in black, creating a mesmerizing and intricate visual appeal.
Beyond their beauty, Partridge Cochin Bantams are known for their gentle and calm nature, perfect for families with children. Their small stature makes them ideally suited for backyard coops. The hens are excellent mothers and often go broody, making them great for those interested in hatching and raising chicks.
These bantams are not only a delight in terms of their personality and breeding capabilities but also perform well in the egg-laying department, producing a fair number of small brown eggs. Weighing in at around 30oz for roosters and 26oz for hens, they are a manageable size for various types of poultry keepers.
The breed, which originated in Asia and recognized by the Standard of Perfection since 1874, is shown in the Feather Legged Bantam Class. This long-standing recognition is a testament to the breed’s enduring appeal and quality.
