    I got this guy with some wheaten/blue wheaten Ameraucana chicks. He's beardless so he's going with my EE, but what's up with his color? Is he a splash wheaten?

    maybe so! [​IMG] I'm not too familiar with the genetics when it comes to splash wheaten. we still haven't decided whether or not we're going to keep him...he was being mean to one of the pullets and the wheaten cockerel I have is much nicer and bearded. this guy would make some pretty easter eggers though

    Toad will probably be gorgeous once he fully feathers and matures, but I personally wouldn't keep him because he has unwanted beardless genes.
