    I was wondering what the description is for creole colouring and how you get it. I have a cockerel that looks a bit like the one picture I saw and he is a chick from a blue barred large fowl cochin roo over a buff orpington hen... answers to Herkemer, getting to be a pretty boy though he isn't keen on being picked up. [​IMG] So he gets picked up even more LOL

    Crele is barring over a black breasted red coloring. Some coloring may look similar but there is a definite standard for true crele.

    If you wanted a description of a Crele you have it, but this may not be so. I have never heard of a Creole is it from the Louisiana bayous?

    Quote:Thanks. I saw them on I think BYC, and figured Id try them out. [​IMG] I think I bought a pack of 3 or4 of them for $1.

    I have heard the colour described as creole before--on a fly-fishing website!

    Thanks for the input folks. I actually saw the spelling and picture of creole colouring on an overseas website for cochins, I had only seen the crele spelling so was not sure if it was the same. I love that picture of your boy, very pretty! My guy is not the same, but similar, just a cross breed with pretty colours!
