    [​IMG] I dont know what to think of he/she or how he/she will look in adult life. [​IMG] mostly still alot of fur after a couple of weeks while the others already are feathering out.

    Wow. Thats a new one! Looks like one of my EE's but with feathered legs. Maybe an EE/Cochin cross? I've never seen one, but thats my guess. What hatchery did you use?

    Here's pics of my EE that looks very similar:

    at Two Weeks:

    and now at Four Weeks:

    Maybe that helps? We'd actually name him/her ChickenDuck because we thought he looked like a baby mallard duck! lol

    From what I can see it looks like a partridge. Mabey a cochin but it is a feather footed for sure. If it is a mixed breed you might be able to get an opinoin on it.

    I was thinking partridge cochin too. Where did you get it? Do you know if it's a pure breed or mixed?
