    Hello! I have a beautiful accidental rooster & I can't recall what breed is supposed to be! He has what I think is called a rose comb, though he's dirty right now from all the rain, his legs are white, beak & ears are white as well... Anyone have any ideas?

    He's defiantly a mix
    I'm not sure what exactly he is
    but maybe a Wyandotte x

    He's beautiful- I was thinking about hatching a few eggs just for fun! I have some marans, olive eggers & Easter eggers.

    Pretty rooster, He looks like he either has some Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, of Splash Wyandotte in him.

    Definitely a mixed breed cockerel, but a very pretty one.

    Mixed breed, probably with Wyandotte in him.

    Thank you everyone! So he'd pass on a brown/tan egg gene? He's so pretty I might hatch some eggs!

    You're welcome, and yes, he'll pass on a brown egg gene.
