    I bought a rooster at auction tonight that I am 'pretty sure' is a partridge. I really hope he is, cause I've been looking for one for a while now. Does anyone have a good pic of one for me?

    Ah, well, I just got the bright idea [​IMG] to look on feathersite, and he appears to be more like a brown-red [​IMG]

    Have you got a pic of him? Brown red will have a black wing triangle, partridge will have a reddish wing triangle. Males of a few different colours look similar.

    This guy basically looks like a birchen, kind of. He only has red on his neck (hackles?) and a little bit on his wings. No red saddle feathers at all. I don't have a pic now, but I can get one tomorrow [​IMG]

    Here is a LF Partridge Cochin for you if that will help.

    We call him "Big Daddy"

    I finally got some pics of him uploaded, I don't think he's a partridge, but what color do you think he is?

    Brown-red ought to have red saddle hackles.

    Shelley, could you possibly get a picture of its side or over him...so you can see his coloring better?

    Is it possible that he is a cross of either a partridge or brown-red over a black, as he doesn't look quite right for either variety.
