    Hello everyone! I'm a new chicken enthusiast. I live in Lisbon, CT on a small farm. So far we have a bumper crop of boulders and ferns. The only livestock so far are 2 horses, 3 cats and a husband (also new). We would love to fill the ice house with some Partridge Cochin bantem chickies - but alas, I know not where to obtain some. I've seen some good info on hatcheries to avoid - and I should mention that I really am only looking for a very small starter flock - as i am sure it will be easy to upgrade to larger numbers - as I am sure that we will! Any info would be appreciated!

    We raise Standard partridge cochins and they are the sweetest birds ever.

    www.idealpoultry.com there is a minimum order of $20 opposed to a minimum order of 25 chicks pretty much everywhere else. So far i haven't heard anything bad about them and am thinking about ordering a few more myself. I just bought 2 standard partridge cochins and have a variety of other bantam size cochins and i just love them. I think you made a wise choice . They are excellent mothers as well if you decide to hatch chicks. [​IMG]

    I really like my Cochins. I have standards and bantams. I only have the Partridge in standard.
    My bantams are better for broodiness and they lay really well. The standards are good birds and make a nice meal if you decide you need to get rid of a few roos.
    Either way you go, Cochins are cool! The Partridge is a nice color and pattern.

    Thanks for the input. I was checking out petchickens.com they are in NJ and will ship small amounts of day old chicks if you are close enough. they had bantems but no partridge style. I'll try the eggbid.:[​IMG]
