    She came from Murray McMurray hatchery I believe, some sort of hatchery anyways. She's big, very heavy and dense, huge thick legs. Super friendly and intelligent, but I have no idea what she is and the lady I bought her from doesn't seem to know so I thought I would come on here to ask! :) Thank you in advance for your suggestions!!!

    No, unfortunately. The lady I bought them from had the chicks mailed, she did not hatch any eggs. I know it would be super helpful information in narrowing down lol.

    Maybe a partridge rock? McMurray Hatchery has videos on YouTube to help you identify your chick.

    I went on there YouTube page and started looking around. I'm still lost, Idk why nobody has been able to identify her yet lol. She's a tough one to figure out. I might just have to wait until she reaches maturity :p at least feather out a bit more :)

    She looks just like one of McMurray's pics for a partridge rock. Nice looking bird.

    Does this breed have different variations in coloring? I'm not very knowledgeable about breeds yet, thank you so much for your input! :D

    I'd guess partridge rock as well. They also come in barred and white (perhaps other colors, not sure).
