    There seems to be a huge lack of information available about this breed, *but* I bought this guy and a group of partridge hens, wheaten hens and roos. He was advertised as the only Partridge roo of the group. After looking extensively online, he's not exactly like the ones I'm seeing.

    Any ideas??? He is young still. These guys were hatched in April.

    I'll try to get a better photo of him tomorrow. This isn't a breed you can walk right up to and get a great close shot~LOL Thanks for the compliments on the girls. I think they are so pretty [​IMG]

    he should have much larger white ear lobes. Also If he was pure Partridge I don't think he would have so much black. I wouldn't breed him as a Penedesenca.
