    I have a hatch of backyard chicks, a couple of which are pb Ameracauna. I put my white roo (wh recessive, blue dominant) over my black hen and got this chick. Is this what's known as partridge colouring? Does this mean this coloring is somewhere back in their genetics?

    Day One:

    Two weeks (dust bath with the white one):

    ALSO, might there be any blue showing up in one of these?:

    Maybe in the white-ish chick, watch its feathering.

    Could that one maybe be splash? Any idea on the brown marked Ameracauna? Is that perhaps what's known as partridge?
    Thanks! :)
