    What did you order?
    full size or bantam?
    What kind of comb?

    Cochin or Brahma depending on comb.

    The colour is Partridge.. so based on what they have available for feathered footed chicks and colour, I'm going to say this is a Partridge Cochin - Standard.

    Although their bantam Buff Brahmas look similar in colouring as well.. The standard chicks don't..

    weird..

    THANK YOU! I searched all the standard breeds but didn't even think of the bantam breeds. We have 6 of these, not 5 and they are tiny compared to the others.
