    Can anyone help with the breed of this pretty pullet? She is almost 6 weeks old.

    What a pretty girl. She appears to be a grey partridge, a color seen in Dorkings (they have 5 toes), Easter Eggers, Old English Game Birds and other such breeds. The skin color throws me off somewhat. What hatchery was she from?
