    Hello...
    This chick was supposed to be a Speckled Sussex. Obviously, she's not THAT. But I'm torn between Welsummer and Partridge Rock. The hatchery said P.R. but I bounce back and forth depending on what photo I happen to see online.

    Any thoughts?

    Looks like my Welsummer. I have both Partridge Rocks and Welsummers... [​IMG]

    First picture is my partridge and second is the Welsummer (they were only about 18 weeks in these pics). Now my Welsummer has a huge bright comb and the partridge has a smaller darker comb.
