    I've shown this fella on here before, but now I notice he has white ears.

    I always thought he was a Columbian Rock or a Columbian Wyandotte.

    Now I have no clue. He came with the Rainbow Layers from McMurray... they were all supposed to be pullets.

    Could it be a blue andalusian?

    It was white like the one in the pic as a baby.

    I think you have a very nice Delaware there! If I am wrong, someone will say something else.

    But Delaware's lay brown eggs don't they?

    And this guy has white ears.

    Judging by his tail feathers he "could" be a Barred Rock/White Rock cross. That would explain the barring and the white. IMO

    Yes funny. [​IMG] But chickens lay eggs according to ear color. if he were a Delaware he would have red ears. or his mom and daddy would.

    Delawares are supposed to have white ears and they lay brown eggs.
