    He's in with a flock of which leghorn laying hens and was wondering what breed he is? Also anyone have any idea why he is being bred to white leghorn hens? Thanks. [​IMG]

    Silver spangled Hamburg. Maybe he's in there because he's something other than white?

    Agree on the Hamburg. My first thought as to why he's there---someone ordered from MMM hatchery and he's the free rare exotic chick that came with the order of Leghorns. Not an intentional breeding, do you know if they're even hatching out chicks?
