    Blue wheaton seems to have all red wings. Lemons have blue tipped wings.

    Wind was blowing that day. He doesn't have a funky tail.​

    Quote:Every photo I could find of a blue wheaten bird (looked at several breeds) has blue wings with a red shoulder and red wing triangle.

    Then how is a lemon blue basicly a brown red with the black replaced by blue? I have brown red cochins.

    My Lemon Blue are also bred by Brown Red cochins. The one difference are the hens, they are not wheaton. I am sure a blue wheaton hen looks different that a lemon blue hen.

    So many pretty birds! [​IMG]
    So brown red or gold birchen with blue will make REAL lemon blues? Or just the gold birchen? (or are they secretly the same thing and I'm just stupid? [​IMG])
    I can't find anyone with LF cochins in either of those [​IMG]

    I purchased this bird from a reputable person during a recent show. It was said to be Lemon Blue....(maybe a lemon blue splash)...you tell me.

    Time for the experts:

    The lacing is a lemon color over a splash bird

    Secondly, what would you suggest I breed him with? Or did I make a big mistake? [​IMG]

    I am not sure. He doesn't look like my Lemon Blue Splash, but he maybe the result of mating 2 LB Splashes together...might explain the washed out/lighter colors. Second guess would be maybe a Blue/Splash mixed with Buff. I would breed him to a Brown Red ..then you will know for sure if he is Lemon Blue Splash if you get all Lemon Blue birds.


    Here is my Lemon Blue Splash roo
