    here is one of my EE's from baby to adult.
    his name is confetti and his comb is barely attached so it flops over.
    just wondering what cross would have made this color.he is from my ameraucanas(either blue wheaten or wheaten) and hen possibilities are rhode island red,
    blue rock,silver penciled rock or partidge rock.

    Quote:he is a Golden(silver/gold mix S/s+) Birchen(E^R/?) and going by the last pics, I see he is partialy restricted(showing lots of ground color on his chest) I would say Columbian is to be suspected here.
