    Full sized feather footed and very chestnut brown. Mystery chick from murray mcmurray. Anyone have an idea as to what it might be?

    It may just be the light from a flash in your pictures, but the breast color seems lighter than the partridge cochins I have. Of course these are my first and there could be some variation in color I guess.

    Thanks for your help, everyone. I didn't use a flash but took the photo with natural light to try and get the colors correct. There does appear to be more white than on the ones ILoveJoe posted. But I think it's a perfect match to the baby !Shkittles! posted. It's so much fun to try and figure it out.
