This is 'Bomber':

His name is 'Bomber' because, well... he's tiny but boy is he one tough roo :shock:

Wondering what his colour would be classed as? Is this partridge?

He's from Daniel Mellor... He got him from somewhere else though... can't remember where he said.

I think I may have found a plausible explanation for his colour from a discussion I was having with someone in the genetocs forum @ the coop.

I think he is a black silkie split for extended black and wheaten... so some colour is showing through mainly in his hackles and wing.
