Hi all. I know nothing about color genetics or pattern. It's not something I can wrap my brain around so don't even try.

What color is this little guy and what pattern is it please?

He looks Silver pencilled... but I’m not sure. He’s adorable!!

Thank you! I hope to keep him if he isn't human aggressive.

I'm not sure, honestly. Maybe mixed color.

His parents were both white but I'm unsure of their background. Turken and Bresse but not sure what the Turkens were mixed with first.

Definitely not barred/cuckoo. I agree with him being pencilled. Of course, since he's mixed, the pattern won't be "perfect" according to the standard.
X2!
Definitely not barred.
Silver pencilled but some genes might not all be there.
I see partridge, but it looks to be only heterozygous.
Also, I'm sure you'll be able to figure out genetics someday, @igorsMistress. If you keep breeding and learning. :p
