    Hi all, my little broody banty hatched this large cohin chick out from the Splash and black cochins. I think it is a pullet, she is about three months old. Would you agree she is a she? What is this coloring called? Also, i know the Roo is a splash, but is there a more specific name for the color?

    Thanks,
    Anne

    Yes she is a pullet. Not sure what to call the color.A blue & red something? If she had been a roo I would have called it a blue breasted red. Sorry I couldn't help you more.[​IMG]

    The pullet up top is a Blue Partridge.


    The rooster on the bottom technically isn't a Splash, he's a Splash with some other genes hidden in there, as that red is not a desired trait for a pure splash male.
