    I wouldn't know since my Partridge Cochins are only 3 weeks old but my white Cochins laid almost an egg a day before they went broody. The white Cochins were almost 6 months old when they started laying for me but the previous owner said they laid for her at 5 months old.
    The size of the Cochins depend on if you get bantams or standards. My avatar is a bantam roo. But I have some standards and my Partridge are standards. The bantams are small enough that I can almost wrap my hands around the body when I pick them up but I have to tuck the standards under my arm to carry them.
    I haven't any photos of my chicks that I can put on the forum here but you can visit Feathersite and look at some. Or just look up Partridge Cochins poultry on the Google site and click on images to see photos.
    Have fun![​IMG]

    I have no idea about the laying, but I do know they get very big!
    but I have some pics here of my new Partridge cochin boy. He is about 9 weeks old! His name is Boss!! I can say that so far he has been the sweetest one out there in the baby pen. He and My Delaware Blue Hen rooster, Ceasar. Boss is the first to jump up on my shoulder and prean my hair!!!! I love love love him!!! He is a gentle giant!

    Here he is!!
    In the first pic, he is next to a 7 week old RIR pullet. He seems much bigger in that pic....but isnt as big as he looks there..he is bigger though.
