    These two roos are white/citron with black patterning. Not sure what the color is called truly.

    white Silkie roo x ? silver laced sebright or mille fleur d'uccle
    The female is iridescent purple and gold laced. her name's Elphaba. She's an amazing layer for a Silkie.
    Pretty sure that all three are what you're looking for - Silkie x Sebright

    This strange looking rooster is an Araucana barred Rock cross.
    I quite like him and may keep him.

    I have a barred rock rooster and am about to get a new hen on Wednesday. It will depend on what they have at the market but what breed do you think would be an interesting mix?
    Also, OP, those two look like they'd be a pretty pair :)

    We have barred rocks and rhode island reds, we recently hatched some chicks and got a Barred Red Rooster (we've been calling him BR) can't wait til he fully matures i'm sure he's gonna look really beautiful. he's starting to get some red and green feathers coming in.

    He's the second from the left... we also got 3 other roosters but they are pure barred rock.

    Nice :)
    I think my barred rock may have something else in him from somewhere along the line. He has just a couple feathers, both on his wings I think that are black and brown. Really stands out.[​IMG]
