    Looks like he has a bit of salmon favorelle in him, then a breed of something else. Gorgeous! [​IMG]

    If it is a he, he has never crowed or shown any roosterish habits. Still hoping for a girl. Kathy

    What does it in for me is his back tail feathers, they flow off to the side at the end of his rump and the feathers go out then down. The black feathers also has a lot of rainbowish colors in it. The tail feathers, the neck colors looks just like a salmon favorelle rooster that I had. It also looks like Chickenduck that you'll see from time to time on these forums.

    Don't know the breed for sure, but his color looks similar to gold duckwing, which is a wild type gene. Only the boys have that color plumage..the girls are much duller looking lacking the blue, green and white coloring in the tail/wings. Definitely a cockerel.

    That is a 100% boy you have there, no doubt about it. I say it is a beautiful mix that includes EE. Looked pretty similar to one EE I had years back.

    Here is my EE Roo. We named him Sally because he always runs and hides behind the girls at the first hint of danger [​IMG]

    I think they have many similarities (sp)
