They are in the transition coop, will be in the barn in a few days in the grow-out pen with a dozen Barred Rock chicks who are two weeks older. That should be interesting.

There are two Darks and seven Blue Partridge x Partridge, so I'm not sure yet which is a blue partridge and which is a straight partridge (aka Gold). No Buffs in there.

I'm no expert on this color variety as they grow up, but it appears to me to be a Blue Partridge. I could definitely be wrong.

 

 

Here are mine at 2 weeks old today. I see that the cockerels (I think, drawing from experience with my Orp feathering) have considerably longer flight feathers so I think I have a decent amount of pullets among the 9 chicks.

 

 

 

 

 

Dead center, turned to the left, is a Partridge cockerel, if I'm not mistaken. I think I also have a few blue partridge in there, if the faded looking-as-opposed-to-black in the wing feathers are an indications.

Ok, I was hoping that's what it is... next question does it have vulture hocks? They aren't stiff feathers but soft.

It does sort of appear to have vulture hocks. There is a discussion of those in the ongoing Brahma project thread started a few years ago by big medicine that I was reading just today. I'm no expert, but big medicine has a lot to say about vulture hocks in that thread you may want to read. http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/525544/ongoing-brahma-projects-thread
