Query re partridge wyandotte

I have a couple bantam partridge wyandotte hens. Wondering if:

they come in large fowl?

If I find a roo and breed him with them, will chicks all be partridge.. do they breed true?

Yes they come in large fowl.If you are on FB, search a guy called Glyn Smyth he breeds them. Depending on what colour your females are will determine whether they are pullet breeders or cock breeders.
Before any jumps in, this is how al pure partridge have been bred for many many years.

Goodluck.

Thanks Desy. Good to hear they comein LF.
Unfortunately I'm not on Facebook.

They're new terms I will have to look up: pullet breeder and cock breeder. Keeping poultry since 2010 but always learning something new.

They're a light brown or light gold tone in between the partridge markings. Not dark or chocolate brown in some pictures I've seen online.

Does that mean I don't mate them with a partridge rooster?

I thought I might find Glyn Smyth contact details somewhere on this website but a quick search has turned up no results.
