    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I had one that was a dark rich brown color and it turned out to be a partridge rocks. Not for sure but it looked like yours.

    I'll go against what you say. [​IMG]

    It has slate legs, Partridge Rocks should have yellow.


    Im going to guess its and Easter Egger.

    I agree with Jordan, the legs of any Rock should be yellow, with the possibility of a black wash on the fronts.

    After watching and waiting for a while I am still debating the breed of this chicken. I haven't decided yet. It could be an EE but there are subtle differences and there is another breed of partridge rock that has green legs... If you don't believe me look it up. The name is Zielononozka Kuropatwiana a.k.a. Green Legged Partridge.

    Here is a link to the info and pictures....

    But mine has a dark beak and has yet to grow a comb so I'll jsut have to wait.. maybe he's a mutt.....

    I'm going with EE. Yours looks like she has a beard. That's definitely an EE trait, not a Partridge Rock. Maybe you'll get some green eggs.. [​IMG]

    That is another breed with green legs, but not another ROCK breed. Your chicken is an EE,lol. I have one the same color as her and she lays beautiful blue eggs. You arent sure because EE's come in any color and dont always have beards. They are confusing mutts.​
