    The Partridge Wyandotte picture from Feathersite is a bird from England. Their colour is much different from those bred in the US. Partridge Wyandottes bred in the US have a mahogany ground colour. Knowing where the OP was writing from would help. The birds in the OP appear even lighter than the British birds. They're pretty & they appear to be Wyandottes but they may be something someone is in the process of developing, maybe?
