    If I crossed a buff Cochin hen with a partridge roo. Or a black Cochin hen with a partridge roo?

    There is a wonderful color calculator but I can't find it now. The one I did find was too difficult for me to figure out, or I was on the wrong page. Google "chicken genetics color calculator" and see what you get. Maybe someone will post the link to the easy one for you, best of luck. HenZ

    Buff x partridge would produce a messy-looking light-colored partridge. Partridge x black will give you dark partridges and blacks with reddish-gold bleeding through in the breasts and necks of the females and the hackles and saddles of the males.
