    I live in Boston and am looking for a dozen or so Partridge Penedesenca eggs (or day old chicks if available).

    Please let me know if you have any and what the price is including shipping.

    According to Sandhill this is a difficult request to honor. From their site: "Partridge Penedescenca: Their color is slightly variable with the females being marked similar to a Light Brown Leghorn. The males are more variable in color but resemble slightly the Light Brown Leghorn male in color. Leg color varies from slate blue to off-white. They are rather large fowl with an extremely nervous temperament. They have varying degrees of the typical Penedescenca comb which is a single comb with a crown at the back. Our primary method of selection is for the darkest egg possible. Too many double yolked eggs makes chick supply poor. Chicks $7.00 each (5) (SOLD OUT THROUGH May 2, 2017)"
    I know there are breeders on this site though- many carrying black or crele. ChickenCanoe is one of the breeders you might want to contact.
