I have production partridge rocks. A few have decent pencilling, most are not great, one is speckled. If I'm trying to improve that and not entirely lose size, comb etc. What are my options in breeds for improvement? Does a lacing breed improve it or another type of pencilled breed or something like the barnvelder double laced partridge or? Cornish? A show p. cochin could work but very hard to get. And then there'd be feather feets. I think I know that golds, so gold laced or gold pencilled would help better than going into the silvers. I'm already going over the color boundaries with good barreds and soon enough good delawares for size, etc. So color challenges I'm already facing. But I'd like to see about bringing in a PR pencilling improver if I can as well. Any thoughts appreciated.
