    Notice the penciling. I keep her with my RIRs, but she was given to me, so I don't know her breeding background.

    It's definitely a partridge. When the bird was given to you did they give a breed name or did they also not know?

    She is simply a BarnYardMix.

    The lady who gave her to me called her a Rhode Island Red, but when I asked her if she was sure, she didn't know. She got it from a feed store as a chick, but couldn't keep chickens in her HOA. Feed stores typically buy pure bred pullets via catalog to sell to the public, and I thought this one might be one of those bonus mystery breeds that they sometimes include with the order or it got mixed in accidentally with the RIR'S as a chick.

    She looks like a Partridge Plymouth Rock to me.

    She's probably a Partridge Plymouth Rock.
