    They will ALL be black at hatch day, they will ALL have a spot on their heads, and they will all be barred at maturity(with some color leakage if any at all)

    why? Barred Rocks are Extended Black(E/E) and sex linked dominant barred(B/B for your boy)

    your partridge hen is eb(partridge) which is recessive to extended black, and she is none barred, which is recessive to barred..
