    Can't be sure, but the first shot makes me think blue partridge.

    Looks like it will be buff to me, with some smutt in the wings and tail. Some of my first buffs I started with looked like this when they hatched and darker. I have cleaned them up pretty well, but I still get some depending on how I have my pens set up.
