    Thought I'd post this for fun to see if anyone can get it right [​IMG] Hint: he is a mixture of 2 breeds. I don't know what the color pattern will be though and if anyone has any chicks with this same pattern (not necessarily same colors) I'd love to see how they turn out

    He is 8 weeks old in this pic

    Red columbian or red incomplete columbian. Is this from a mille fleur project?

    I was thinking red columbian but have never seen a columbian chick and yes his daddy is a mille fleur cochin

    Quote:change "red" to "buff," and I'll agree. As for breeds, my guess was cochin X brahma.

    Mille fleur is a colour pattern, not a breed. It is found in many breeds.
