    [​IMG]Her feet are huge and she's very clumsy. Suppose to be a white partridge rock but I have accidently gotten "meat chickens " before and was curious as to maybe she isn't a partridge but one of those.. What does everyone think? I've never had white partridge rocks before.

    Hi i have a chick hatching and I helped it out a bit but now I don't think she can unzip now I will post a pic.[​IMG]. So with what she looks like in the picture above what should I do. I don't know if I should keep helping or leave her.

    There is no such color as white partridge. A solid white chicken is based on extended black, with either dominant white or recessive white modifying the black.
    Post this over on the Easter HAL thread. That chick looks to be in the proper position, but not quite ready to start zipping. It can take over 24 hours from that first external break in the shell for a chick to finish hatching. Don't rush it.

    Maybe they meant White Rocks and Partridge Rocks.

    Or maybe they said Plymouth Rock. Partridge refers to color. So it would be a partridge Plymouth Rock. But, with that said, it's clearly white and I'm pretty sure that whatever it is, it's a Boy. It could be just white Plymouth Rock cockrel. How old is it? It could be a Cornish Rock cross too...(that would be a meat bird)

    I agree with the being a cockerel. But personally out of all the breeds we've named it mostly looks like a light Brahma rooster. It has all the traits and the huge feet.

    Except that there is no pea comb or feathered legs, and Brahmas aren't solid white....
