    Hello all,
    I bought this chicken from my local feed store about 2 months ago. I really liked the color, and markings on this bird, and when I asked the feed store folks what breed she was, they had no idea. I then began researching on this website as to the possiblle breed that this chicken could be, I came up thinking maybe Barnevelder due to her markings and colors. Recently though I saw a friends Partridge Rock, and then began wondering if she may be a Partridge Rock? I am still leaning towards Barnevelder, but would like to know for sure. She has not yet started laying, so do not know what color eggs we will get yet. Thanks for all the help.
