    Definitely not a Delaware. Looks like a Columbian Rock, but then I get them confused with the Sussex.

    What hatchery's website is this from? It looks like either a light sussex or columbian rock, but neither is commonly found at all hatcheries. Narrowing it down would help.

    It's a Columbian Rock- Sussex have white/pink legs, not yellow.

    Quote:Wrong. Delawares should have yellow legs. Pink legs on a Delaware is a fault.
