    This one came from an grab bag of sorts from Atwoods. We know who the rest of the roos are by now, but this little one is out of my area of expertise. Any idea on sex? Feel free to mention the color if it's familiar. [​IMG]

    I've got my fingers crossed, but only seems to help about 50% of the time. [​IMG]

    I've no idea what color this is; I love the random bantam bin at Atwoods b/c you can get a cute little selection and not know what anything is until they start growing. Or, crowing.

    I think I saw a polish with coloring like this called a Crele? It's just darling . . . . . . I need one now too [​IMG]

    Definitely not crele. Much more like tolbunt, but I doubt that either as it is a pretty rare and epensive colour. However, can you take a closeup that shows the pattern on individual feathers? Tolbunt is gold laced plus mottled.

    Very nice looking bird.
    I agree with Sonoran it is not a Crele. What it looks like is a Tolbunt project gone bad...

    I would doubt it, too, then, considering where they came from. This was the only puff head in the bin, so I just had to have it. I'll take a close up of feathers tonight.
