    Valley center ca
    Got this big boy in valley center awhile back and he is to me one of the most handsome roosters large and full...but i have no idea what he is..prior owner had about 6 roos.. stated they were mixes but i dont remember even asking with what since he was so nice looking.. i would love any input from anyone on ideas of his mixes.. thought blue laced red wyndotte because of the red an[​IMG]
    d blue lacing in front feathers..chest area.. but his come is clearly a mix so any help would be nice he is really big id say honestly 9 lbs..heavy..[​IMG]

    And its hard to see with out the sun but his tail feathers give off a purple and beetle green shimmer and his back saddle feathers although colored maroonish..change in different angles like a fish they are sliver sided or something. .

    Im trying to give as many views as possible to help any of you pros out there to help me narrow down breeds.. i wish i saved the ladies number then i could just ask the prior owner..hindsight always 20 /20 lol

    His legs are a bit pale for a purebred Wyandotte, but he does look like one. He could be a gold laced crossed with a blue laced red Wyandotte, and it's possible he has something like Orpington in him. He's a good looking boy.

    I can see some Wyandotte, and maybe some Orpington as well. those light legs have to come from something like an Orpington or a Marans, they're the most common white skinned breeds he could be. Sussex is possible, but I think you'd get quite different coloring and they're not too common.
