    I was wondering if i bred my partridge roo to a black cochin hen if the partridge color will be dominate? If not what possible colors will appear. Will the black be dominate or would it mix? Thanks

    I believe you would get blacks with recessive partridge lacing and some birds with blurred partridge colors... not a good idea to cross them. The lacing is a gene that should be crossed with other lacing genes. It will pop up in all your birds with a splotchy look.
