    Any idea what the cross might be? There were partridge and black hens and white, red, black roosters.

    Do you know if these can be 'splashed' with something else or does it look like it will be a standard partridge?

    What about sex? Anyway to tell that at this age? (1 day)

    better photos will be up soon. And it IS adorable![​IMG]

    I think I see some silver coming in on the wings. Maybe a silver partridge?

    its a partridge, and likely a boy....I base my assumtion on the fact that its comb is so noticable even at day old. But, you truly will not know until at least 3-4 months of age if not longer.
