    This (the one standing on the feeder) is supposed to be an EE, but has a single comb, bright yellow legs, teeny bit of black near end of toes. To me (but I'm reeeeaaaaalllly new), she looks like a really poor example of a partridge rock. Opinions please.

    Not an EE. Maybe a partridge rock, not really familiar with them though. [​IMG]

    That is Not an EE.....a close u on the feathering would help to ID what it is...hard to see the pattern in the photo you posted

    I agree a closer pic would be helpful. A partridge rock or maybe a welsummer? Is she laying yet? If so, what color eggs?

    My first thought was a welsummer, but I do not know for sure.

    Definately need a couple more pics. I'm leaning towards a EE Roo....also post how old it is with pic.
    I have some EE girls that have the welsummer look but green legs. Is this one in question laying??
    Keep us posted!

    I can tell you it's not a welsummer. Closer pics would help.

    I'll try to get a closer pic today. She is 8 weeks old, not laying yet, no red on her comb at all and its not very large.

    She's named Hunts for Others based on her mealworm hunting and retention of worms from yesterday. Poor thing only got to eat 1 in 6. But it was funny.

    It's hard to see (why won't they stand still) but she has partridge looking marking on her shoulders and brown/red barring lower.

    I agree, that looks like a partridge rock. The duckwing feathers are kind of throwing me though. But to be honest, it's fair game on genetics with hatchery stock.
