pekin colours

Postby jammin23 » 11 Jan 2013, 17:43

I was wondering if anyone could help me. Im plannning on breeding a few of my own pekins this year and just wanted to know what colours I would get with a silver partridge cock with black, lavender and silver partridge hens. Any help would be appreciated.

Silver Partridge Cock x Silver Partridge Hens gives (not surprisingly) Silver Partridge young.
Silver Partridge Cock x Lavender or Black Hens gives Black young though the cockerels may grow up to have silver hackles, back and wing feathers.
