    Hello,
    I have a Leghorn mix cockerel and I am trying to find out what color he is. He kinda looks mottled, his under coat is a milkie white and his neck looks like it is laced. Does anyone have a guess?
    Thanks!

    He's too mixed to assign a color to. "mottled' is probably as close as you are going to get. He's pretty though :)

    He looks more like a Game mix than a Leghorn mix. As far as color goes he looks too mixed to pick just one [​IMG]
