Blue Partridge is simply the blue version of the ordinary partridge Wyandotte. All the black markings are diluted to a grey or blue colour due to an incompletely dominant gene.  This means that when a blue partridge is crossed with an ordinary partridge you will expect to hatch half blue and half ordinary partridge chicks. Read more about breeding and genetics of  blue partridge Wyandottes.
