    This bird is about 14 weeks... not sure what color I should consider it... I actually have a hen and a roo same colors. I assume it is a partridge but it has a lot more blue in it than most partridges I have seen. This was hatched from eggs I got from Mary Robbins.

    He's an off color, or a poor colored blue partridge.

    Pretty color, but not a standard color.
