    I bought this little girl at a local swap and the man i bought it from said it was a cross of some wyandotts. Its very sweet and unlike my leg horns will let me hold her. Any guesses on what she is. I was thinking she might be a blue laced red?

    How old is it? Looks like a cockerel to me in those pics.

    Maybe a BLR crossed with golden laced? It could be a pure BLRW. [​IMG] It does look like a rooster though. And [​IMG]

    its somewhere in the neighborhood of 7 to 8 weeks old i think. and i was hoping it was a hen but it is very gentle and doesn't fight with my leghorn rooster even though all my birds are only 7 weeks old so i don't know if they would even fight yet.

    I can't really tell if it is a pure blr but it definitely has some blue on it's feathers.

    He's definitely a mix of colors. Can't really call him laced at this point but I would guess he does have a laced color in his background.
