    Wheaten is a "color"/ pattern not a breed. Nearly any breed can be bred to come in a Wheaten color/ pattern.
    I say nearly any breed because a Rhode Island Red and a Rhode Island White (two different breeds) will never come in any other color/ pattern than Red for the Rhode Island Red or White for the Rhode Island White.

    Also the bird in question isn't a Wheaten or Blue Wheaten color/ pattern.
