    That hen looks a lot like my Partridge Rock. This is a photo I found online, but Cinnamon Hen has these markings on her feathers.

    Isn't that the lace from a Wyandotte? Or am I completely wrong. What is that breed standard book everyone talks about? Help!

    This is a Wyandotte, she will have a rose comb with more of the lighter color in the feathers. A Partridge Rock will have the small single comb with the pointy striping on each feather.

    She does look like a Partridge Rock. A lovely bird with very nice lacing!

    OOooo, I had to look that one up and they are very similar to the Partridge coloring, VERY similar. I think to be sure you would have to know where she came from and have better photos, especially of the neckline feathers.

    You can also tell by egg color. They lay dark eggs similar to a Maran egg just not quite that dark.
