    GLW golden laced wyandotte. his comb is a rose comb that all wyandottes have. he's a handsome guy what are your plans for him?

    He's not a Gold Laced Wyandotte, but the comb is called a rose comb. [​IMG]


    He's a sex-linked cross between a Wyandotte, likely Silver Laced, and something else, likely not even rose-combed. He doesn't have lacing, he's got blue color, and he's half gold, half silver. There's a number of combos his parents could be.
