Cockerel with colors

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi, my flock is a mixed bunch of Buff Orpingtons (Rooster and Hens, a few Barred Rocks and Australorp hens and one Jersey Giant hen.  Out of the this springs hatch appears this good looking guy.  

 

I need help in Identifying this cockerel.... I hope you know!

Do you mean he's a product of your mixed backyard flock?

He looks like a Wyandotte, but with a single comb.

Junebuggena, yes his is a product of a mixed backyard flock.  Apparently, there must be a Wyandotte gene in there somewhere.

I agree someone had lacing somewhere, but he really doesn't look like a Wyandotte as far as shape. he's no particular breed, just a barnyard mix.

Lol i was like why would they white out te back ground 😆😖 the second picture i was like seriously they have computer skills then i noticed the rough patches and realized what i was looking at was snow. Thats just sad lol. He a very beautiful bird.

Yes, my flock has to deal with snow and the cold, which both are late in coming this year.

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!
