    Sounds like what heritage Delewares used to be.

    I have Partridge Chanteclers and Buff Chanteclers. Whites are the only (standard) variety left on my list.

    It is probably a good thing for me that the US postal is not delivering baby chicks this season in my area because I have also made a list of chickens I want to add to my flock. I have enough chickens, but I would like to have a ameraucauna, a cream legbar, a sultan, white crested Black polish, silkies, olive Egger and many others!

    My real dream would be if somebody could make the hens look like the roosters with all their fancy feathering and coloring!

    Oh please share photos! I don't think I've ever seen partridge ones!

    Yes I would also like swedish flower hens.

    I own and breed English Orpingtons and love them! They come in so many different colors and are huge gentle friendly birds from my experience.
