    I have partridge rocks, and it sure looks like a hen to me! How old is this bird?

    Yep, a hen. My PR rooster that is the same age has mostly black/green feathers all over with very little red right now. If you click the link in my sig, at the bottom of the first page are photos of the boy and girl at weeks 9 and 8. You can also visit the partridge rock thread here- lots of good photos or different stock at different ages. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=456704&p=1

    Thanks, I kinda thought is she were a he, he would be coloring up differently. PRs were not a breed I had really wanted, but I am so happy I have them. She is the sweetest little bird.
