    The row of hens (3) in the middle is what I was refering to in the piture. This I was told was a duckwing. Henk69 said (hopefully I'm tellingit right) is a partridge/buff columbian cross. I was also told that partridge and Black Breasted Red were the samr color.


    So any Partridge or Darl Brown (as in Leghorn) should get you there.

    Maybe someone with genetics knowledge will chime in here and explain it better.
