    He's not quite a partridge color, close but still a mix of black and partridge. Some colors on chickens can't be described by office terms.

    Makes sense...OK thanks!
    I was wondering how to describe his color in conversation or posting. We call him "Brett Michaels" because of the " frosted mullet"

    He is a sharp looking boy and certainly one of a kind.

    He's a mixed color. If you're advertising him for sale, I'd go with the Brett Micheal's thing [​IMG]
