    Please post your photos of chicks and matured birds in Calico, Tortoise, Partridge, and Porcelain -- my personal interest lies in these color types in a blue/lavender with buff tones color-scape (does that make any sense?)

    I'm overwhelmed, scattered and a bit confused and need a condensed visual.

    Partridge - I've gleaned that this requires penciling and a distinct color pattern to actually be considered Partridge -- what else is required?
    Calico - I've gleaned that this requires three distinct colors with NO pattern -- what else is required?

    Thanks in advance for indulging me.
