    You know I was pretty nervous too, but then I decide not to show the roosters. There is a YouTube video of a probably 12 year old boy dubbing a cockerel and he made it look easy as pie. I would suggest looking up some videos

    He has a little brassy in him... But the hen is from a different line that the guy bred the brassy out of. So I should get 50% good blues and 50% eh colored. Granted It will be difficult to tell with the splash and blacks which has the correct color in them or the brassy one... SO I will prob do black to splash and blue to blue.

    My little solomon has been happier in a bigger area. What do you guys think of him? After having searched for a while, I think I have come upon the idea of him being a Lemon Blue color? Do you agree with my verdict?

    No, I believe that's a blue Wheaten OEGB. [​IMG] He's adorable!

    ETA: Here's a photo off of google for reference.

    I believe this is considered a Lemon Blue.

    What color would these chicks be considered? They are supposed to be "fawn gold"..
