He can't be truly considered a Delaware, but definitely you can call him a Delaware cross. Not sure how the coloring will turn out. The smuttiness in the feathers may clear out or it may stick around, hard to say. Will be fun to see how he looks as he grows up. Sammie Jo came from Ty's sire out of her barred 1/2 Delaware Aunt Delia and looks like a 100% pure Delaware so you never know. ETA: Off topic, but I have to see this movie. @wekiva bird , you may be interested in this one.
