    We have a partridge cochin rooster and haven't had any luck finding a corresponding hen. I'm considering getting a few white cochin hens. What would happen of we were to breed our partridge to a white hen? Which color would be dominant? Is this sex-linked?

    I had a hard time finding some partridge hens as well. Ended up driving a few hours to get some. I know I tried this combination (with the white) on the chicken calculator- but can't remember what "partridge" to use.

    Anyone know?

    Your partridge is e^b/e^b Pg/Pg based. Show examples > Row 6 > middle pic.

    White and partridge is a crap shoot. Depending on what the white is "hiding".

    What exactly does this mean?

    Go to the Kip Calculator,

    http://kippenjungle.nl/kruising.html?mgt=E:e+/e+&fgt=E:e+/e+

    Then for partridge (gold multiple laced)...
    Click on the "Show examples" bar. When all the pictures of the different colours of chickens show, go to the 6th row & click on the picture in the middle of the row.[​IMG]
