    i bought her at a sale. She has a straight comb and is super pretty. She seems too light to be a partridge rock but she appears to have that similar pattern. What is she?

    I would guess that she is a mix.

    She is very likely a hatchery stock partridge rock.

    Hatcheries are all about quantity than quality, as they are a business and their chicks sell for so cheap. So a lot of their birds reasonably look like a breed but not "perfect"... as long as they are making fertile eggs that's the end line for them. That's the reason for her resembling a partridge rock but as you saw, the coloring and patterning is a little off from pictures of "show bred stock"

    She is beautiful though, and what matters is you think she is beautiful. :)

    I thought she might be also. Any guesses on any possible breeds involved?
