    Out of what I have I believe it is a SLW and either Partridge Rock or BO roo.

    SLW X Partridge Rock gotta be that


    Are you sure it isnt a gold laced something or other? It is strange because I think Silver is dominant to gold and rose comb is dominant to single comb [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My SLW roo has a single comb. [​IMG] I think the gene has not been bred completely out because of fertility.

    I think you should call it a PLW--Partridge Laced Wyanrock!!

    You will find single combs appearing periodically in wyandotte lines. Even the best breeders have it happen. They just hate to admit it!

    Partridge rock SLW cross. It was a SLW hen and PR roo? If so, it should be sexlinked, the males will be SLW/silver pencilled looking, while the females will look like GLW's with 'ghost lacing' in the center if I remember correctly.
    If you look at the partridge pattern in females, it is basically lacing, I think the SOP describes it as a triple laced. Grant Brereton said that even his GLW's have partridge in them.

    I have both PR and SLW roo's and hen's together so it could be either one.I believe it is a SLW hen crossed with PR roo.
