This roo is 5 months old and his sire is a Splash roo. Mom was most likely a gold laced hen, given his coloring, but the pasture had buff laced, gold laced, silver laced, and blue hens in it. I think he is gorgeous and I love how the lacing is blue with gold fill (as he ages, the lacing is becoming more definite - see the second photo). He doesn't have white on his head he was growing in feathers and the angle made the shafts look white except for a single all white feather towards the back. He has a nice full black beard and muffs, a top knot that is growing in well and beginning to show blue and gold lacing and just a trace of a comb. Good toes and straight beak, too. Is this an actual "color" or recognized color? I am still very much new to chickens and am hoping Santa will bring me a few books on colors, breeds and genetics this year I am considering keeping him to breed from next year as he is such a lovely bird. What color should I cross him with to retain the blue and gold coloration? Thanks for any info. I really appreciate all the help I have received from the wonderful people on this site.
