What breed mix is this?


In the Brooder

Almost certain this is a cockerel. Any guesses on breed. I had light Brahmas, black Autralorp, Isa brown and golden laced Wyandotte and the only rooster I had at the time was the one in the second photo.

X2. Australorp is obviously the mother. But the leakage should be more reddish/yellowish and less silver. So it doesn’t make sense.
That’s what I was thinking. Though, do Australorps carry silver?
The father looks to be pure for gold. It’s quite confusing.
So how would homozygous silver x homozygous gold (?) = a bird that appears to be homozygous for silver?
Very confusing.
Is it possible the father is heterozygous dominant for gold?
🤷‍♀️ I’m as confused as you are.
He should have at least a little yellow.
