    I love my partridge rocks. They are so friendly and much prettier than the pictures I saw of them before I ordered them back in May

    Thank you for posting the chick pic. She looks just like my mystery chick, Misty. Mystery solved.

    I have partridge rocks and welsummers - - - They look very very similiar.

    You have to look at the feathering to see the minor differences. The coloring is basically the same, but the feathering design is different.

    The partridge rocks will have the partridge pattern showned on ascorbic's pics.
    The welsummers will have the same coloring, but the design on the feathers will be more like a gold streak on the dark brown background on each feather.

    They both have yellow feet. Their combs are the same. They are the same shade of brown. It is HARD to tell the difference until you see the two breeds side by side at the same age.

    Show us a picture of your girl - - Sharol

    This is my Welsummer (Lisbeth) who I suspect may be a roo from the wing feathering and stance (and feet).

    They were ordered as pullets, but we all know how that goes. they were 3 weeks old yesterday.

    Could the second one be a Golden lace wyandotte ? ?

    The first one is looking like a partridge rock.

    The first three pictures are the same bird. I have a GLW, and she is quite a bit darker.

    This is the GLW:

    Thanks for the reassurance on the Wellie. She is quite an active bird and a real education to watch. She is very cute, a real gangly teenager.
