    I ordered Partridge Rocks, but this doesn't look like the pic on the web site.
    Do you think maybe it's something else? [​IMG]
    Legs are greyish.

    Click on pics to make them bigger. QUESTION....
    (what am I doing wrong that my pics are not as big as everyone elses? & you have to click on them?
    Is it from camera or upload? I am uploading on the largest setting suitable for message boards)

    I think you have Partridge Rocks but the legs may not have developed their full yellow coloring yet.My roo has much more yellow on his legs than my hens do and you have two pullets there.

    Pullet: In show terms, a female chicken under 1 year of age. In normal terms, a female chicken that has not started to lay. Used in UK and US.

    Cockeral: In theory, used to describe a male bird under 1 year of age on both sides of the Atlantic. In practice, it is used as a term for male chickens of any age in the UK.

    After 1 year a pullet is a hen and a cockeral is a rooster.

    A pullet is a female chicken up until age one then she's a hen.

    pretty much every partridge rock i have ever seen does not have solid yellow legs they always seem to have the darkish grey yellow legs and i do not know of any private breeder that has them only commercial hatcheries

    Looks like Partridge Rocks to me. We have some and they look a couple different ways. I'd say that's what you got PR's.

    I got 3 partridge rocks, and two looked just like yours, one looks like it does in the pictures. Mine had dark skin on their face, comb and legs. I just rehomed them (too many chickens) but they were just a deeper mahogany red than the other one.
