    This one is half the size of the others (at best). It eats, it drinks, but I'm thinking it's just going to be small (or at least it's starting out that way). It's always been tiny compared to the others, even as a chick, and while it's grown fairly well, it's still very small compared, say, to the chicken on the right (which has literally never peeped once - it makes this weird, scratchy noise when it is upset or cold or happy).

    The feathers on this one's neck are rounded at the bottom (they appear pointed in this picture, but there's a black round part below the "tip" of the feather that appears brown below).

    I think if it has feathered legs its a prtridge cochin, if not, maybe a partridge rock.

    She has clean legs, so maybe just a partridge rock. Small, but possible. Thanks!
