    A guy came to my house the other day to buy a couple roosters from me. He said that the breed of chicken he raises is called "Tetris". I have never heard of them before and when I tried to do a google search, no pictures came up. Has anyone heard of this breed before?

    Tetra tint... I think it is a sex link. It is an off white bird. Search that one

    The tetra tint according with Mt Healthy catalog is: "a cross between a Rhode Island male and a Leghorn female, producing cream colores or tinted eggs". The bird is described as mostly white with at times some brown or even black hightlights. In the catalog the hen in the picture looks llike a off white leghorn.

    It's a Tetra Tint, a newfangled hybrid layer, as I understand it.

    Exactly. I remember when they were first introduced a year and a half ago. Had BYC scratching it's collective head for months!

    Thanks for the info! He even wrote it down for me as "Tetris" to search and learn about them. He told me they laid brown eggs. Interesting to know!

    That's kind of funny. May be a Tetris is a chicken with red and blue squares on it's feathers? [​IMG]
