the one on the left can someone tell me what color he might be
I'd say he's black but has some genes in him giving him that gold hackle. I had one just like that, except with silver hackles and saddle feathers.
would it be better to get some pics in the sun?He never had that gold before they just came in when he started to crow at 6 mo
his baby pic
Still think he's black with some hidden genes.
I think the common colors you can buy, but are not necessilary standard are, black, white, red, paridge, blue, self blue, red, and buff.
I agree with SilkieChicken.
I agree. My black Ameraucana cockerel was the same way. Here he is for comparison. The gold streaking just showed up at about 4 months old, if I remember right:
I also agree, just some hidden wild type genes ppping up, I wouldnt breed from it because it increases the chances of it coming back in future generations.
so black looks black right? what is the diff between black-blue-grey thay all look the same to me
I don't think there is such a color as "grey". They are blue. If you check my website I have a page of black birds and a page of blue birds.
If you intend on breeding, a black chicken with yellow or silver in the hackles is not a good choice.
