    He isn't a bantam, just a baby. He is actually getting quite big now.

    A few hours north of you near Roxboro, NC. But there are lots of us in NC if you ever have the chance to come to a poultry show. :)

    No, I bought the eggs from Catdance eggs and did not order partridge in my hatching egg selection.

    I have been wondering if you have Oleander? He wouldn't intentionally eat it but a tiny chip would be enough. One leaf will kill a horse and it's very popular in CA.
    Precious memories....
    She is really a beauty! I still like that boy. [​IMG]

    No, they were marked as paint (P) not partridge (PA) as she marks them. Trust me I check closely on everything ;) Now whether she mismarked them during collection I can't tell you. Why would you doubt they came out of paint breeding? I'm just trying to determine if bred would they breed true or pass off mystery colors coming from paint breeding. I also have a blue pullet that came from paint eggs from a different breeder that I have held on to. I sold the paint from that hatch as it had a funky comb. Thanks :)
