    My guess is CL is the blue one on the left. You do have a nice set of colors there....

    Sorry about your rooster...

    That would be lovely. Would give us more relatively local blood while making it easier to bring in something not completely removed from our own stock.

    Lonnyandrinda,

    The subtitle color are hard to see in photos. I am not sure if many people with be able to see in the photos what you see in the way of color distinction. The questions that keep coming up are telling be that too much is lost due to lighting and what not. :)

    I tried to get the best distinction I could and here are the best photos I could capture. I hope that everyone else can see what I see. The gold pullet has a brown body, gold hackle, and red around the head while the Cream Pullets has a gray body (void of any brown), cream (off white) hackles, and no red around the head. They pullets are hatch mates out of the same cockerel.

    on another subject, I also thought this photo was instructive. It is a Cream Legbar Pullet next to a Single Combed Light Brown Leghorn Pullet. They are also hatch mates. The Cream Legbar Pullet is from the same cockerel as the two pullets above. The Leghorn is obviously unrelated. The Brown Leghorn shows a lot of red down where the Legbar (who is likely going to be a Gold colored pullet) is a dark color with charcoal black in place of the red areas.
