    I have a blue partridge silkie cockerel, and I want to breed him eventually. My question is, does one breed a blue partridge with a blue, a partridge, or something else entirely? Thanks in advance!

    Quote:if you breed him to a Partridge hen you will have a 50% chance of having Blue Partridge and 50% Partridge... I would use partridge if I were you
