    I have both standard and banty cochins. Love them all!!! I just picked up 10 banty chicks this morning from a friend of mine. They are so cute. I got 4 blue, 2 barred, 1 partridge, and 3 white. I am VERY excited about them. I hope to get some nice hens from them!!! Good luck with you babies. I am glad to hear that somebody else enjoys them as I do!

    I have one buff standard, a black bantam roo and a partridge bantam hen. I love them! [​IMG]
    OH! I almost forgot that the partridge just hatched 4 babies, so I guess that means I have 7 Cochins! [​IMG]

    I have all in all, 1 standard black hen, 1 standard blue hen, a partridge rooster(banty), a red frizzle rooster (banty), a mottle banty hen, 2 buff banty hens, a buff pullet, a barred pullet, a mottled pullet, a partridge pullet, and all of the 10 new babies! So that means that I have...21 cochins, mostly bantys.

    yours is probably a partridge. It sounds like my baby. I will get pictures of them as soon as possible and will surely post them
