    I got my chicks from MMH and i ordered 3 Partridge cochins but i got 4 instead and they don't look like partridge to me so i was wondering what color they are. The pics are all of the same chick (need to get more pics)
    in the pic it is a week old.

    It is probably too early to tell what color he will be. When he starts getting his feathers in you should be able to tell a little better. My Salmon Favorelle roos start out almost all white with a little black and turn out very colorful!

    Its partridge, they start out really dark. Dark Brahmas also start out that way but they are silver based so they are lighter. You can see pictures of chicks on the MMH website. I think they have pictures of every breed they sell both adults and chicks.
