    Hi,
    I have a beautiful partridge roo and only one partridge hen and I have a beautiful blue hen that was in a pen with a roo that
    has yet to show any interest in the ladies so I put the blue girl in with the partridge boy becasue I have seen sonorans blue partridge and fell in love!! I was wondering if anyone else breeds the blue partridge and if you have any pics I would love to see them!! Also I was told how to get the best coloring ect and was wondering what you all do.
    Thanks.

    Quote:This is cool. I have a white showgirl who crossed with a partridge silkie. One of the chicks looks like your showgirls, kinda. I'd wondered what to call the color. It's definitely blue and getting all these lovely buff highlights. The blue part is darker though, more like Napoleon's coloring.
    Will try and get a new photo this afternoon. More buff comes in every day and she ( [​IMG] ) is getting very pretty!

    They are beautiful! I just bought three blue partridge chicks and I hope they are half as nice as yours.

    It sure is a pretty little thing.

    She also got a solid black chick from two partridge parents...I now have that baby.
