I'm pretty sure these are standard sized cochins. I have 4 of them. Two a little darker than the others. They were fuzzy as chicks and have feathers on their legs.




Here is a chick picture of them just incase.



They were also hatched the weekend before Memorial Day.

Looking at feathersite.com, I think they look more like a brahma than a cochin. Either way the color looks partridge to me. I have some cochins and their legs are way more feathered than that, but the comb seems wrong for a brahma. Maybe someone with experience in brahmas will show up.

Those are the only two breeds from that list that could remotely fit.

They may not look like cochins but there is no partridge brahmas. I believe the first pic is a partridge cochin but they are suppose to be alot fluffier. How old are they?

Sort of look like partridge cochins, but just not very typey cochins. They should have so many feathers on their feet that you can't even see the feet. Also, noy enough "fluffy feathers"....

There is actually. But they are in the UK.

I vote hatchery stock Partridge Cochins.​
