    True to type WLR Cornish are basically a dominant white (in the form of lacing) over what I'd believe is a red columbian, possibly even just a black tailed red. (partridge, columbian, mahogany, and gold)

    Hatchery based WLR Cornish can have a lot of other things in them (or a lot bred out), as most I've seen aren't even laced, but instead either just smudgy or pencilled. (possibly the lacing bred out, so they're just a messy partridge w/white)
