    Chicken 1 is an EE and a suspected Roo. What do you guys think?

    Chicken 2 is either a Black Australorp or a Blue Wyandotte... not sure which breed and also a suspected Roo because of what looks like saddle feathers to me. Any ideas on gender or breed?

    The EE is a beautiful cockerel.

    The second one is a black Wyandotte cockerel. Has a rosecomb, and is not blue.

    The Wyandotte was sold to me as a Blue Wyandotte. Obviously the actual color is black, but when I asked this question here on BYC, some of the Wyandotte people chimed in that Blue's can come in Blue or Black...

    Either way, thank you guys!

    Quote:What they meant is that blue does not breed true, so breeding blue birds will toss out blue, black, and/or splash birds.
