hello, what you want to do it look at all the different colours that you can find and compare him then get him the same colour females as him then youll get pure breed colours which sell for more and look beautiful.

Hi fifi,
My guess would be the pair are yellow partridge and the single girl is Blue partridge but as i say it's only a shot at it. [-o<
Maybe someone can say for definite :-k
Can you not ask the person you got them from??
The cockerel has made a nice bird.
Nice piccies though.

The cockerel is Gold Partridge, if you are breeding from him you want to try and select away from those with the odd brown/gold bits in the areas that are black. His comb isn't ideal but I have found that sometimes a cock with a poor comb can produce offspring with good ones...

The two girls are also Gold Partridge imo. Good breast and head/neck colour. The back and wing feathers should be peppered rather than laced, again something to select for when breeding. Their legs need a dose of benzyl benzoate too :)

I would say the last girl is not right for blue partridge but does have the same ingredients! Possibly a cross between gold partridge and self blue that needs some work. Very nice though and more attractive than a proper blue partridge female to me.

Have a look at the Dutch Dutch club website to see the colours. http://www.hollandsekriel.nl/kleurslagen.htm

Thank you for your replys. Yes their legs and nails are a bit of a mess they came to me like that I haven't had them long they are being treated with a spray. Could you post a picture of the peppering you mention please. Many thanks

First brown hen isn't a Dutch - legs wrong colour, shape wrong and too big. I'd say it's a heinz57.

Second lighter brown hen doesn't look Dutch either though I can't really see her legs. She looks a fair approximation of the Salmon colour though. :scratch:

Two boys both Blue Partirdge :) First of them looks pretty good too.

Wonderful pics of all the birds. Now I know what the two I have are. How long before this breed starts laying? Mine are approximately 6-8 mos old and not had any eggs. I am assuming also that they are both hens as they are not showing any characteristics of a cock. Thanks.
