    I have a chicken from a hatchery that I am a bit confused about. She look just like a Partridge Rock but has grey legs, she does have a singe comb and is a beaut. Just cant find her on the breed list and she is not free rare/ exotic......I think she was added mistakenly

    with hatchry birds they can have the wrong leg color, wrong comb, ect as hatcheries breed for eggs prodution. so she could be a partridge rock a welsummer...

    she has not started laying yet so I cant say for sure but the ee's I have got in the past are usually a smaller bird, more narrow, less docile, and have the face tufts..... bear with me I have a pic of her but am trying to figure out haw to post the image

    Quote:Being EE's are a crossbred bird, you can literally get any combination of features, even though facial "fuzz" is mostly the norm, I've gotten many clean faced birds from hatchery stock [​IMG]
