oh! thank you! never heard of them before! Will have to look them up.

He isnt coloured like the traditional partridge so I assumed he wasnt one, but other people have told me is a silver partridge but I didnt think silver partridge had the brown on the wings? Haha I dont think tortoiseshell is quite his colour!
I wonder if I've got a gray partridge. See the two little partridge guys in this picture?. The color on the closest one is starting to turn rusty brownish like I would expect for a partridge at this age. These aren't my first partridge chicks but all so far of mine have ended up traditionally colored. Look at the partridge in the back- he's getting grayer- not browner.
This is #1 below- traditional partridge at 5-6 week- just starting to turn brownish
And this is Clive below - (actually I have no what sex he/she is but you got to call them something)
Absolutely no brown- getting grayer by the day.
So far all my partridge adults look something like this below, pretty traditional.
So do you think Clive is a gray partridge or do I just need be patient until he/she gets more plumage?
