    this is a very complicated, multifaceted question you asking. without a study of color genes and their dominace over one another, the easiest thing for you to do is go at. There are books written on this and you shouldn't expect much of a detailed answer on such a broad question. List one specific cross and someone may have an answer for you.

    I am no expert, but i would say the partridge roo with the columbian hen will give you rooster with the silver gene making them white backgrounded (i am not sure if the partridge pattern or the columbian wins out but i suspect a combo), the hens will not be white background, but more like the color of the father and again probably some of the pattern of both. that's the incomplete part. You turn this around and make the roo the light columbian, and all the young will be silver/white background.

    it is hard to find answers
    crossing gold partridge to light columbian
    F1: some chickens after molting will show partridge and some show at 4-5 months old, crossing F1 together will give other colors like dark (silver partridge) and partridge that is not multiple laced how will that look like?
    the columbian will be incomplete columbian how will that affect the black on the neck and wings?

    "incomplete" can be interpreted as the pattern is not quite correct; perhaps slightly, perhaps a lot.
