    i posted about this chick before but never got much of a response...now it is older so let's see what y'all think.

    this bird is the product of a black java roo (pure, for sure) and EITHER a pure gold laced wyandotte OR a partridge colored EE. now that i am seeing the pea comb i am leaning toward the latter as mama. with an ee there could be a BR, etc. in her history. but the GLW seemed like a possibility because of the patterning, and i can't think which other chick might be hers.

    anyway, here it is. acts like a girl but the comb/wattles are a nice red. thoughts on breed (mama) and sex? is that indeed a pea comb?

    it's weird because it seems SO OBVIOUS that it's a BR...but i hatched this bird, have only one roo, and had only a very few eggs in there that weren't pure, so i know the likely suspects...and i have no BRs. don't know the background of the EE if it's mama though...or the GLW either but it sure does look pure.

    well, i know it came out of one of my eggs, and like i said only one roo here.

    good to know it's a girl...whatever it is, it's a super cool bird, maybe my fave, and is calm and interesting.

    I would have guessed Barred Rock because it looks like my 4 BR's.
