    Any suggestions how to mix them? They have seen each other thru the fence this whole time but of course when I toss them on the other side they act all freaked out and want back over but those poor few hens r being beat up

    This is probably a dorky question but what is a Sultan?

    Thank you Cynthia12 , they are just pets but have great crest and feathered feet, ect. I enjoy watching the partridges change from little chipmunk patterns to beautiful shades of color. I might keep a couple but trading out all the rest.

    I actually had two partridge hatch today, I am sooo excited because I have been trying for partridge. I have one with chipmunk stripes, and one without, did all of your partridge have the stripes..and if anyone knows, what will the difference be in looks..I just can't wait to see. [​IMG]

    What do you all feed your silkies? I have always fed layer(Kent Extra Egg) since I have layers too. I am just wondering if there are other options for these smaller birds.
