    Just a quick question i need answered. If you crossed a Gold Partridge brahma hen with a light Brahma rooster what would it look like? Would it be a proper colour?

    Many thanks,

    The birds would not be of a proper color. As they grow feathers the silver (S/S) in the rooster will make all the off spring black and white. The females will have terrible penciling and the males will have a messy breast and under side. May get some red leakage in the males.
