Partridge Cochin chickens are a massive Asiatic breed covered with an extraordinary abundance of soft, fluffy colored feathers. Partridge Cochins have an intricate pattern known as Partridge. The males feature dark red hackle and saddle feathers with a black tail and breast. While the female’s feathers are a rich mahogany brown delicately marked with two to three concentric black bands known as penciling. The feather pattern is even more stunning upon close examination. They have a bright red, single comb, along with red wattles, earlobes, and a red patch around the eyes. Cochins were introduced from China in the mid-1800s as Shanghais, and they created a sensation wherever shown. Today this breed is still a beautiful show bird and highly prized for exhibition.
