What are my roosters?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have three roosters I need to give away, but I'm not certain of their mixes. Any help is appreciated.


Goliath - his mother is either a blue wheaten ameraucana or a partridge Easter egger. His father is a white favorelle. Goliath has extremely shiny feathers that often appear white in photos, but he has no white. His feet both have four toes but five nails.




Tortie - his mother is also either a blue wheaten ameraucana or a partridge Easter egger. His father, I believe, it also my white favorelle. Like Goliath, Tortie also has four toes on each foot but five nails.




Cinnamon - Cinnamon's mother is either a buff orpington, silver laced wyandotte, or my black hen Joke who was given to me. I'll have to post a picture of her - single comb, beard, feathered legs, lays brown eggs. Cinnamon's father is either the favorelle, half partridge Easter egger and half lavender orpington, splash silkied ameraucana, or the son of the EE/orpington and black copper marans.

They'd all fall into the "Easter Egger" group.

Even Cinnamon where there may not be any ameraucana or EE involved at all?

I was hoping someone could tell who their parents could be based on how they look. Goliath and Tortie both came out of blue eggs and have that weird 4.5 toes thing and legs like my favorelle (none of my other birds have white legs), so it's a bit easier. I want to know if it's more likely their mother is a blue wheaten ameraucana or the partridge EE? I don't know enough about fowl genetics to determine it myself.

Since Cinnamon hatched out of a brown egg and looks nothing like my favorelle but more like my other roosters, it's more difficult since there are more options.

And thank you!

The pea combs give it away, they all have Americauna parentage somewhere back in the line. Favorelle would pass on the beards, but would also pass on the single comb. They only breed in the mix with a pea comb is the Ameericauna.

They would be considered Easter Eggers, which isn't really a breed. Here is some more on the subject: http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/128806/differences-ee-ameraucana-araucana-pls-post-pics
