    I have 3 silver partridge hens but no silver partridge roo. I have a gorgeous double barred red cuckoo roo and was wondering if I put him on the hens if I would get Crele with more red in them??? My Crele that I have lean more to the gold and grey. Thanks for your imput.

    welcome to Backyard chickens, hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Sometimes folks get color breeding advice on the "what breed or gender," thread You can give it at try.

    Crele is Black Breasted Red with the barring gene. Your cross would produce birds that look similar, but will be more varied (no two will look exactly the same). They would not actually be Crele. You could get non-typical red sexlinks though.
