    I'm guessing partridge plymouth rock maybe? The partridge coloring is so pretty as they grow into a full feathering.

    Edit: Wyandotte makes more sense with the body size. So Partridge Wyandotte perhapse?

    It really is, isn't it? Any idea on the sex? S/he has larger wattles than any of my other chicks of the same age.

    I'm not sure on the breed, but I'm leaning towards pullet, despite the comb growth. Could you take a side picture that shows his/her saddle and sickle feathers better? [​IMG]

    That was quick! So, with these pictures, it looks like you might have a cockerel. The saddle feathers are looking pointy, which means boy.
