    I know this is a long shot, but you people have impressed me thus far. [​IMG]
    I've got a new addition to the family; a rhode island red, and we REALLLLLLY hope she's a "she" and not a "he."
    Around two months old...
    Any thoughts?
    Guesses?
    Shots in the dark?
    Hypothesis?

    That is a Partridge Cochin Pullet.

    I have one.

    The comb will develop eventually.

    Not a RIR? Okay...I buy that. Fuzzy feet = cochin.
    But I don't think it's a EE.
    I have an EE and they usually have fuzzy cheeks and such.
    But what in God's name is Partridge Cochin Pullet. [​IMG]

    Here is what she'll look like.

    Mine only gives me 2-3 eggs a week, brown and not too large... but she is large. wierd I know.

    I'm not one of the experts but I just raised RIR pullets that are now laying and they did not look a thing like your bird.

    I would have guessed "she."
