    Doesn't look like the Partridge rock I had either. Mutt?

    It came from McMurray so it shouldn't be a mutt. Its between 3 and 4 month's old

    what colour was he as a chick? RIR are a nice light red(usually solid, sometimes with slightly redder stripes on the back) while partridge rocks are a combo of black, red and brown.

    It's a McMurray Partridge Rock mutt.

    and I'm stickin' by it.

    (I have a couple of their "Partridge Rock" pullets...)
