    Hi-
    See the eye stripe? that means it's based on the e+ wild-type allele. I think this bird is going to be a e-plus based partridge. I don't think it's going to be brown based (eb) Partridge because it doesn't have the brown helmet on its head. it's got a stripe over the top of its head instead which days e+. should be a real pretty bird.

    Where did you get the chick? Can you tell what comb type it has? What color legs does it have? They look white in the picture.

    Looks to be a crossbred to me. Nothing pure coming to mind.

    The chick was found by my Fil on his property. He thinks a neighbors chicken came over to hatch since he doesnt have chickens but thw cat was gunna get the chick with no momma in sight. His/her legs are like a grayish white and I can't tell comb type yet.
