Hi there. I just go this guy about a week ago. He is a bantam cochin. The person I bought him from said she thinks he is a red, or partridge, but I don't think either of those are fully true. He might be partially red. But since their feathers change as they mature, I wonder if he might be a partridge? My guess is he is partially blue, and partially red, but I really don't know. What do you guys think? Thanks

He looks close to blue laced red... super interesting! Where was he purchased?
In Paso Robles, California. But I don't think the person who sold me this cockerel was intentionally breeding a blue laced red. I'm guessing he's a mutt, for lack of a better word. Maybe a blue laced red by accident? Lol. I'll try to remember to post pics in a few months and when he's fully grown
