Is this Birchen? If not what color?

I seen this bird for sale and I was wondering what color this is. He is listed as Birchen but all the Birchens I see are silver/black.

I believe I am chicken crazy and the dozens of chicks in my room will attest to that.

That isn't any recognized color. He's gold/red base color, with a partridge type pattern, and what looks to be incomplete lacing (giving the black flecks look). No telling what else he may be carrying. That is quite mix.

Thanks, I had no idea what he really was but he's gorgeous.

Nope, not birchen. He could be quite fun to play with color-wise, with different hens. I'll bet you'd have the most colorful flock in the neighborhood :)

Maybe he came from someone's Millie Fleur project? Very handsome indeed!

I thought maybe the same thing. His chest pattern reminds me of my Mille's. I was looking for cochin roosters and he was labeled as a birchin cochin.
