    I'm just thinking ahead here as none of my birds are old enough to lay yet.

    I have a partidge rock roo and a mix of barred and partridge rock pullets.

    I assume since their all plymouth rocks I'd get purebreds?

    What color would I end up with?

    I don't know but my friend incubated Rock eggs and he thought they were partridgeXbuff so he called them buffridge rocks lol [​IMG]. But they came as just partridge (they had partridge hens and a partridge cock so the eggs came from the partridge hens and not the buff hen). That would be an interesting color though.

    Technically they would be pure plymouth rocks. You will get black star type chicks from this mating, the males will get the sexlinked barring from the hens and the females will be mostly black.
