    Partridge boy is a roo. Partridge girls will keep the black/red patterning, the boys will, as yours is, get rid of it over time and go solid red and black.

    The barred mutt is a boy. You don't need anything special to sex them other than the white spot on the head - If it's huge or goes back to the neck, it's a boy. Also if the mother was barred, father wasn't - It's a definite boy.

    partridge looks like a roo to me, also. i have a partridge cochin and her colors never looked anything like that, as she grew up. she's 7 months old now.
    and at 3 months, the comb/wattles are very large and very dark red. it also looks like his hackle feathers are pointed, to me.
    sorry ):

    well what are the chances. I have a milli flure rooster who raped it and it's half the age of the rooster. Is that normal or will a rooster hump another roster.

    let me clearify. The milli is 2 times older then the partridge. Is it normal for the milli to hump/rape another rooster. If that is what the partridge is.
