    Not sure of the colors you would get but would love to see a pic of your partridge roo. I know on the araucana club website someone was interrested in getting a partridge araucana project going.

    Well Lavender is recessive, so the percentage of visually Lavender chicks would probably be very low.

    There would be no lavender chicks in the f1 unless the partridge was carrying lavender. Lavender partridge is beautiful btw!

    I would really love to see a pic. I have been told that there are so many modifiers needed to get partridge in araucana.

    I would think you would get bbrs, and brown reds, maybe a black. I only say that because I read somewhere that to get the partridge color you would need to have black and bbr in the breeding but not sure at what point.

    This is only a guess based on what I have read. I would go for it and see what you get. Let us know.
