What color is this rooster?:
He resembles a Golden Neck colored bird....like a homozygous Blue Mille Fleur color.
not sure what color he is though
hi roocrazy, if this helps here is his family tree
New Hampshire roo + RIR + Barred Rock hen = his father
and his mother is a California White
He's a red columbian, quite possibly with mahogany (like Rhode Island Reds) and dominant white (all that white you see there)
There is no blue or splash in him.
Quote:ok thanks, is there a way to describe california whites in a chicken calculator?
Also, does he have the Ib gene like Pyles?
California Whites I know are dominant white, . . . I don't know much beyond that. I always understood they're a white bird with slight speckling from something, but I'm not big on the breed.
Never heard of an Ib gene. . . Red pyles are a Gold Duckwing with Dominant White.
Your rooster is a Red Columbian with Dominant White.
California White is a hybred. The Ib gene stands for inhibitor of black, Grant Brereton describes it in his book Twenty First Centry Poultry Breeding.
