Young EE Rooster, color identification

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever seen this color before, if so, does it have a name? I got this little guy as a random in my order this past July and I've never seen anything like this color pattern before! Also I know they shouldn't be roosting on that fence, it wasn't there permanently smile.png. Thank you so much for any help!

That's an Easter Egger. He isn't a standard color, but genetically he is silver base color, with the columbian pattern, and red leakage.

Agreed

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!

He is an EE, they are not really standard colors.
