    This chick (the dark one not the roo red star) was my free exotic chick from my last Murray McMurray Hatchery order. It's DEFINITELY a feathered footed. I was thinking maybe a Partridge Cochin Bantam? he/she is very skittish so I apologize for the lack of a decent picture, but this one does show his wings, coloring and legs nicely.

    Looks just like my partridge cochin. Mine is not a bantam though. If you look at my pictures in my profile, I have one dated May 14, 2012. She is 2 weeks old in the picture. Unfortunately, I think "she" is a "he.". We may have to change her name from Princess Jasmine to Aladdin! Actually, I'm going to need to find it a new home if it starts crowing :(

    Updated picture... I'm no longer thinking bantam because he's rather big and his legs are SUPER long...

    Anybody venture to guess what breed he is?

    His whole life has been a "weird stage." He's the oddest looking thing I've ever seen!!!
    Thanks for the answer.
