    HIJACK!
    Malia- you aren't originally from Birmingham, are you? I had a childhood friend named Malia that I haven't seen or heard of in decades. I have very fond memories of her.

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled topic...

    What kind of chick is the polka dotted one? It looks like chocolate chips!

    Sorry, I'm not from Birmingham. I'm pretty sure that the chick is a gray silkie though the partidge one's are very similar.
