How do you "make" blue partridge? - Page 2

post #11 of 18

Would it be possible to use a partridge hen with a blue roo? or a splash roo?

If I'm understanding the rest of the genetics posted in this thread combined with what I know of the Blue gene, the Splash to Black Partridge would result in only two options for offspring, Blue and Blue Partridge?, Then you could just breed your Blue Partridge Offspring back to the Black Partridge?

 

Edit:  Could one follow the same process to create a Blue Silver Pencilled?  Since Silver Pencilled is a Silver Partridge pattern? I suddenly got a flash of inspiration picturing a Dark Brahma, or Silver Pencilled Rock with Blue Replacing the Black and it sounds very awesome.

You should take a Partridge rooster because you can't garantuee that the blue donor isn't based on silver (groundcolor is hidden).

 

Cross partridge roo with a blue hen.

The offspring will not be Partridge.

 

Backcross a blue offspring hen to a Partridge roo.

Some of the offspring will be Blue Partridge.

 

2 Generations.

Wow. My BraIn Has Been Violated. I Find My Self Reading This With A Stupified Look On My face...Eyes Bulging Out Of My Head, Eyebrows Raised. Im Totally Engrossed In This Thread, But Feel So Simple For Thinking, "Huh, I Wonder What The Chicks From My White Chicken And That Other Black And Brown Chicken That Hates Me Would Look Like."

Mind Blown. *Sigh*

Ok I know this is OLD but I did it!  I made Blue Partridge Rocks!  3 Crosses and the chicks are chipmunk striped.  Might take a couple of more crosses to work on type but it is not too bad right now. 

 

@Goose and Fig

 

First cross was to a nice Partridge roo I had and to my Splash Rocks I got from Holly.  Then I crossed those pullets back to the partridge roo and he died on me.  So in for a penny in for a pound right???  I ordered some Horstman Partridge chicks and they grew up at the same time as that second generation chicks grew out.  This was the biggest and BEST looking roo ( I have a back up roo too) so I put him over the Horstman pullets.  They are LAYING LIKE CRAZY too.  I will be hatching like crazy so I can pick the best of the blue pullets to cross back to my best horstman Roo.

You want a chick picture?  I don't think I have one.  I have blue partridge rocks.  I don't seem to have any pictures on BYC.  That is not looking like a blue to me.  BUT they are not easy to tell for sure till they feather in and you can see the blue.  I don't have but one blue hen the others are from Dick Horstman and I am breeding a blue back to them to keep improving them.  I just set a big batch of eggs form that pen.
