    I know these pics are bad because half her neck feathers are gone but her neck is usually all yellow. But here are some pics of her (Sophia). I want to get a male that is the same breed as her and I want to make sure I get the right breed. When I bought her the guy said she was a lemon blue (which I've never heard of before) so can anyone tell me what you think she may be. She lays white eggs. [​IMG]

    She's a Hatchery Quality Lemon Blue Old English Game Bantam.

    You can breed her to a Lemon Blue rooster but your going to get offspring that are Lemon Blue, Brown Red and Splash.

    Lemon Blue x Brown Red = Lemon Blue and Brown Red offspring
    Lemon Blue x Splash = Lemon Blue and Splash offspring

    *Note Splash in the breeding is a Lemon Blue Splash not a "regular" Blue Splash.
