    i reads somewhere that to get a good partridge color you should ahve a buff roo over partridge hens is this true? does it make then more showable? im asking because when i get my farm someday i want some built in incubators, that will also have sellable eggs.

    What a cool idea [​IMG] I hope you get some answers here because I would like to know also. I"m trying to talk hubby into turning our huge pole shed into a breeder's haven [​IMG] And would love to breed some silkies.
