I thought I was a Partridge Rock.

Hi, thanks in advance for your help.
I thought I had 3 partridge rock pullets and I noticed yesterday that one had light lines on its breast and side feathers rather than the
ring pattern on the feathers the other two have.

X2 but I am not real familliar with the breed. How old is she? If she lays a darker brown egg (not Marans dark, but darker than the others) she could be a Welsummer

Wow, thanks. They are 19 weeks and no eggs yet.
I originally had over 50 birds(17varieties) in that flock. I thought I had 3 Welsummers and 3 Partridge Rocks. I sold 2 Welsummer cockerels at 8 weeks and the third which I thought was a pullet turned out to be a boy. Too many birds for me to keep track of. From now on I get a single breed at a time.
edited to add - What made matters more confusing, 1 chick arrived dead, 2 died at 4 days so I wasn't positive what I had left. Then about a month ago a pack of huskies broke into the coop and killed 9 taking some home with them.

I should get some eggs from that flock soon, 2 are Jaerhons, 2 black Leghorns and 4 Anconas. Most with combs and wattles turning red. One of the roosters has been breeding at least one of the Jaerhon pullets.
