    Hmmmmm I could not find a pic of a Wheaton Cochin (is this color an accepted standard for Cochins?).... but the hens in other breeds appear to be mostly a light buff kind of color with few markings.

    Ok... I see them there.....

    Looks like the Partridge have other colors in their wings besides the blue/black color. But I am unfamiliar with the wheaton color variety. You would have to post a pic for people to see in order to determine if it's Partridge, Wheaton or maybe even Red/Black.

    OK I FINALLY GOT THE CAMERA TO DOWNLOAD 9 it does help if you use the right cord!!!!!)

    What i am tring to find out here is what color is this chicken is he a partridge or a wheaton? He is a Bantam Cochin. Also brought up earlier was is a wheaton a recognized color for him? My daughter is wanting to show him in 4-h. There are pics on FEATHER SITE but not sure they are helping me any. If anyone has input let me know color or any thing else that you may see ......... THANK YOU

    I believe a wheaten is going to have a solid black breast, no shading or penciling. That is what the wheaten ameraucana has.

    I think he is partridge.

    I know nothing of the standard of partridge color or for cochins so I couldn't tell you, but he is a "looker".
