7 Week Old Mixed - Pullet? - Page 2

post #11 of 16

Mixed breed. Looks like a pullet for now.

Looks like a pullet to me, too.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."

You are correct about her being a barnyard mix. It is unlikely that she is carrying the blue egg laying gene because she has a single comb. Also, she is a pullet because of her female-style partridge feathering (males would have black feathers on their chest at this age and have more of a "patchy" look to them) and her small, pink comb. smile.png

I know this is a boy. Just waaabted to share.

He came out of pure lavender ameraucanas. So he carries both the recessive white genes and the recessive single comb genes.


He does appear lavender in color... but the underfluff and underbelly is white.

I really want aWhite  Sebastopol that is young and nearby! Our male died two days after we bought him. I would really want a female though because the Sebbie was to be a companion for my duck, and now we think it's a drake.

Lavender does not have anything to do with recessive white. Lavender is a recessive blue dilute gene, sometimes called self-blue. He's got a single comb, so his parents were not pure Ameraucana. Lavender is a project color right now. The stock is still far from 'pure' and they don't breed true yet.

Thanks, everyone, for your expert opinions! I appreciate the help. Much relieved that Edna is still a girl smile.png
