    I have a mixed baby who hatched out and i cant tell if its barred or silver laced. I know its a polish mixed with a giant barred cochin though. There may be a 1 in a million chance that my rooster that was eaten (my SL polish) was the dad. But i dont believe it is...

    I noticed i cut his feet out of the pic they are NOT feathered

    Can you make the photo larger? and/or spread the wings. At the moment, though I don't see bars.

    What is mama (barred cochin?), and what are choices for daddy?

    momma is a golden laced polish

    Sorry, I got the possibility of silver laced daddy, but got the impression that barring was from mama.

    Okay, gold laced mama plus silver laced papa would be a silver laced pure polish female or a golden laced (Ss) pure polish male.

    Golden laced mama plus barred papa would be a number of different things depending on his genetic makeup. One variation I tried came up with spangled-check out the hamburg chick photos on feathersite and see if that is a match.

    I'm going out on a ilmb and saying laced. Laced Polish chickens don't take on the 'laced' look until the get their adult feathers. And my Olive Oil is beginning to look just like that. [​IMG]

    Oh no! Is this Mick Jagger we're talking about?! What happened?

    I'm sure if we tried we could come up with some genetic-nightmare combinations. And some really pretty ones as well.​
