    a few other questions what color would be best to match him up with? Also what would I get from the breeding as in what colors?

    It is an off colored grey. You will not be able to breed the rust out of him to get a grey.

    so if i bred him with a grey hen I'd just get grey chicks with these markings? Don't get me wrong I love his color he is one of my favs! I'd just like to see a chick with all that color on his back i think it would be beautiful!.

    The chicks would hatch out as greys and the rust would come in as they mature.
