    Hi! I bought a bunch of mixed chick from RKO a couple of months ago and I have one that looks like either a partridge cochin or partridge brahma. Does anyone know how to tell which one it is? Her neck is lighter than the rest of her feathers. I will try to post a pic of her tomorrow when it's not dark. She looks identical to the hen pic in the post entitled "Wanted Young Partridge Cochin Rooster" under the chicks and chickens section and that person was saying that theirs was a cochin. I'm not familiar with cochins or brahmas...so I am looking for some signs to look for.

    If you live in the United States I dont think we have partridge brahmas. If we do they would be rare and probably not offered at a store.

    Cochins have lots and lots of leg and foot feathers and lots of fluff in between the tail and ground,,,,,,,,Brahmas have foot feathers on the outside of each leg, very sparse,,,,I suppose that would be the easiest way to tell you without seeing a picture. Cochins are globular in shape,,,,Brahmas are taller

    Even easier-Cochins have single combs, Brahmas have pea combs
