Is Jenny a partridge rock???

    This is Jenny. She is basic hatchery stock, so I know she does not have ideal attributes. But is she a partridge rock?? About 8 weeks ago I saw two different people post chick pics (pics that looked like her at that age) and they were told they were NOT partridge rocks. I don't really care what she is (although I requested a part. rock), I just want to know what chicken breeds I have.

    She looks like my Partridge Rock..how old is she? Or did I not see that..will look again. I have a girl that is ready to lay any time now..she's taken her time, but her comb is finally looking more red than pink, and next month she will be 6 months old.

    Adding, she's not a barred rock..that's for sure.. [​IMG] and I did see her age..she's pretty!

    the first set of feathers on a partridge hen look barred, but her "big girl" feathers will be better!
