    Yes I had them mixed up, but they were marked PA not P. Regardless the question was about whether breeding partridge from paint would provide predictable offspring. Sonoran gave some helpful input.

    I thought the first one was considered a silver partridge? I really like the coloring on that one, that black head is very striking [​IMG]

    You can search online for "Silkie ABA standard and compare your birds to the Standard Of Perfection.

    A quick review of basic standards "not all inclusive, so read the standard yourself"

    5 toes
    Dark brown to black eyes.
    Rose Comb
    Color is pure or matches the standard
    wings not drooping
    Feet feathering extends to the middle toe
    No red in the comb. It should be dark mulberry color
