    OK so I have several types of pure breed chickens.

    However, I have several cross-chicks are hatching now.

    I know for sure I have one GLW/Partridge Cochin Cross.

    And One Buff Polish looks pure.

    But the new one that just hatched I am not sure if it is a Partridge Cochin/Buff Polish cross or if it is a PartridgeCochin/Black Sumatra Cross.

    The chick has feather legs so I know the cochin is her dad, but she is all white with a black spot on her back.

    I am thinking her mom is the Sumatra, but not sure. Does Black and Partridge give off white with black spot

    She does not have the skull of a polish does anyone know color phenotypes?????

    Don't sumatras have black skin? Do they as chicks? Would this give you a clue, if it's right?
