    So someone said my roo was not just a black roo with lots of gold leakage but that he may be the coloring of brindle. When I think of brindle I think of tiger stripes on a dog...LOL


    Here he is I'd like to hear your advice. Bred to black I get alot of Offspring like him & solid black chicks too.

    I thought he was more partridge colored. I haven't ever heard of brindle in poultry.
    I have roo that is colored somewhat like that but blue and gold and breeders have always told me he is a blue partridge. He is on my website under Sizzles, though he is a Silkie in that breeding program.

    He was not chipmunck marked as a baby and nor is his offspring.

    He's an off color. Is he from a mixed color pen?
