    I sent you a message but he does look Silver Pied, are his legs blue/gray? Looks around a year & a half old(do you know his age?). are you getting him for breeding? it looks like he has a nice, big body. [​IMG]

    Hard to say - he could be sun bleached. His feathers look scraggly and that usually means it's been a while since he's moulted, so it could be sun bleached feathers there.

    I brought home a barred hen this summer who I would've sworn was a fawn. She came home like this:


    And now she looks like this (blue fawn or lilac) :


    I would say that drake is either a sun bleached lilac or a silver. He is also a pied. [​IMG]

    I was just on google just searching and I found him.

    The owners called his color champagne and it looks more silver pied than champagne.

    I am going up to Saxapahaw, NC next weekend to go and hopefully get a pair of them or a quad.

    I'll take some pictures of them when I get back home with them for you.

    Thanks, Bleenie and Caprice_Acres

    Caprice might be right, his wing tips look bleached.. kind of a beige color. Hopefully you found some nice Silvers over there.. Can't wait to see em!
