    What is this pattern called? It is very unique. It looks like a couple of different patterns, solids, etc. He is 6 weeks old. Any help you can give is appreciated.

    ETA: And check out those army green legs!

    he is EE colored.. Like all mutts, They throw many different colors, Some of which are just mixes of the two, three, or four colors in his genetics.. i would say a Duckwing pattern (Maybe a wheaten or BB red) And a dark color were used to create that... looks like some "yard hatches" (Chicks hatched off the yard with unkown parents (usually) and raised by hens..) I had in american gamefowl which came out of a brownred and a hatch (BB red patterned with green legs.. ).

    Green legs! OMG! He/she is so cool. Would I like to get some eggs from this one. Clearly his gramma really did wear army boots. Absolutely awesome![​IMG]

    You gotta love those green legs. I wish I could keep him and get eggs from him and an EE hen but we can't keep roos. If you want you can have him.
