    Thank you, I like him too. Just would like to know if you could tell what breeds he is mixed with? I'm not that familiar with diff. breeds yet.

    It looks like he has a pea comb. If so, the odds are pretty good he carries the blue egg gene. They are both beautiful!

    He looks from the colouring like my Splash Blue Laced Red Wyandotte Rooster.
    Splashes have 2 blue genes making the bird look almost white with flecks of blue and black.

    Maybe he has some Blue laced red wyandotte in him some 2 or 3 generations ago.

    Quote:Thank you fancyfowl, I googled Splash Blue Laced Red Wyandotte Rooster and he does look very close to what I found. i hope he produces pretty chicks sometime in the future.


    Birch Run Farm, I got him from a local Farm and Garden store. I think they may get their chicks from Cackle Hatchery.
