Cochin bantams first appeared in England around 1860. It was first considered that they had been bred down from large Cochins, but that is not the case as the foundation birds were brought from China by returning soldiers. Partridge Cochin bantam chicks are dark brown with light brown streaks down their back and white on the wing tips, chest and abdomen. They have single combs and feathered legs and feet. Adult females have a deep reddish bay head and a hackle that is black penciled and laced with reddish bay. The rest of the feathers are primarily reddish bay penciled with black. Adult males have a red head and a greenish black hackle, saddle and back that is laced with red. The main tail is black, and the wing coverts are greenish black forming a wing bar when the wing is folded. The primaries are black edged with reddish bay while the breast and body feathers are greenish black.
Our bantams are purebred and represent the breed and variety; however, we do not guarantee or represent that they are of show quality.
