    We bought three new chicks today and were told they were:

    1) Delaware - white
    2) Partridge - Red
    3) Golden Laced Wyandottes

    Any input on these would be very much appreciated. I'm particularly curious about the second, as I've not heard of it.

    Thanks.

    Partridge is a color..... do they have feathered feet? It is a popular Cochin color.

    could also be a partridge rock, it is a common heavy breed variety at hatcheries.
