In Brahma, Partridge colouring typically refers to the Gold partridge (black pencilling over a gold base) however we also have Blue Partridge and Splash Partridge too.

The Blue Partridge differs as these birds carry one copy of the blue gene creating the steal blue/ grey colour over the gold instead of the black in the pencilling.

Splash carries two copies of the blue genes when this occurs, the colours of the bird change completely and most of the pencilling is gone, instead you are left with a beautiful light coloured bird with orange patches and some dark tail feathers in the roosters.

Our Splash partridge breeding pen only includes Splash birds and you should only hatch splash birds (however anomaly’s can happen and you may hatch a blue or gold partridge).

Partridge breeding ratios:

Partridge x Partridge = 100% Partridge

Partridge x Blue Partridge = 50% Partridge and 50% Blue Partridge

Partridge x Splash Partridge = 100% Blue Partridge

Blue Partridge x Blue Partridge = 25% Partridge, 50% Blue Partridge and 25% Splash Partridge

Blue Partridge x Splash Partridge = 50% Blue Partidge and 50% Splash Partidge

Splash Partridge x Splash Partridge = 100% Splash Partridge
