    I think he's mostly Americauna, but what color would you guys say he is? Splash? The wife is crossing him with two Silver laced Wyndotte hens, should be some real interesting little peeps that's for sure! [​IMG]

    His name is Squiggy, and the hens are Lavern & Shirley![​IMG]

    I figure he is between 16-24 months. He has a decent shape and a good personality. Hopefully he is healthy and fertile. We'll find out soon enough.
    How long would you suggest I quarantine him before putting him in with his ladies? He seems to be very healthy, droppings look good, no signs of lice, good body weight, clear eye's and nostrils.
