Any idea what's the make-up of this boy...?
Looks like a Cochin X game.
I wouldn't say he's crossed with game, but probably pure cochin ( just lower quality) and a mix of two or more colors, I just can't pin down which ones, is there any other info you can give as to where he came from and possible colors of the parents?
he's a second cross cochin/ wyandottes from somebody trying to breed silver laced.....
Soooooooo ......... what exactly are you wanting to know then if you already know that much ???
will he breed true (colour)? I'm just wondering wether he's split of gold and silver gene or something else..... like I said, 2nd cross, not sure what colour was the cochin used in the mix.
Pretty much a total guess.. eb base? Shanks are yellow, seems a lot of wyandottes are eb based.. from color would guess S/s+
righto... so he won't breed true...
No, what you can tell is that he is split for Silver & gold.
He is also a crow wing, (black wing triangle) . Silver Laced Wyandottes are Duckwing ( silver wing triangle) so I am guessing the original Pekins (bantam Cochins) was either a Birchen,ER/ER or a Black E/E and he is heterozygous for one of these. As he has good yellow legs I would go for a Birchen/Brown ER/eb split.
Thank you , the owner is trying to breed a blue birchen, guess that roo can be a start...
