    Only the last chick is partridge. The first is grey with autosomal red. The middle could be either blue or black; can't tell from the photo. The first and middle appear to not have black skin.

    They all also look like boys :oops:

    I agree with Sonoran on the colours. Middle looks more blue than black to me.
