    Looks a little like my partridge rock. Also a bit like my dark cornish. Is the head a almost maroon-red in the sun. Both of them looked like that. The cornish had a grey under belly and the rock had a brownish. Does that help?

    Also, what does it looke like from the top or back. Are the legs yellow or horn colored?

    Here are mine at about 4-5 days I think.

    First the Partridge Rock (sorry for this bad pic

    Then the Dark Cornish

    And at about 3 1/2 weeks

    And at 8 weeks
    The Partridge Rock - Rogue - cockerel

    And the Dark Cornish - - pullet we believe

    I have lots of chickens right now, but I must admit I am very partial to these two. I know that Mya will be part of permanent flock, and maybe Rogue if I decide to keep a rooster. I had one chosen, but he is just now crowing, and it is too loud and too early.

    I hope this helps you determine the ID on yours.

    They both had sort of a brownish color legs early on. I think it is what they describe as horn colored. The cornish now has some yellow as well.

    Can you get a couple more pics... I think that will help someone more experienced to ID it.
