    Is this a real color(if so what color) or a mixed color? The mom was partridge and the dad was either blue or buff.

    The one below is the same one as the third one in the back. I'm curious about the first one(in the front) in this photo to, they are similar in color.

    We have 2 just like it... I always thought they were partridge splash. Yours have a little more red in them, so that might be because of the cross.

    Dad had to have been a buff, making this one a partridge but not a great show-type partridge.

    Thanks. I just needed to know because I'm planning on selling him/her. I knew he/she wouldn't be show quality anyways(has 4 toes on one foot and 5 toes on the other).
