Head and front view:
I don't know the answer. Just wanted to say it is beautiful and I think you should send it to me.
This precocious little guy started crowing at 2 WEEKS! His name is Cocky Locky, and boy is it fitting! His new wife is getting all dolled up for him as we speak--errr--write.
I'm no genetecist when it comes to chicken genes, but I see black, mottled and mahogany. I had a couple of my original mottled cochins hatch out that color too.
you can't tell genotype looking at an animal that wold be phenotype...genotype would require matings with know recesives...
now if you are wondering about what color it is...spangle
I don't think it would have white primaries if it were spangled?
Yes, I see mo/mo and Mh (probably one copy?) I'm wonder which e-allele it is, and whether the mottling is hysterical or not.
WOW... develop that breed! Sonoran Flurre....
I would think it is a form of a Spangled..
Here is a Spangled Asil that was on Feathersite..
Well, I am far from an expert on spangling--which is why I asked . Cocky Locky is a handsome fella, though.
He is split silver/gold, with Mahogany & Mottling. As the wing triangle is white he can not be Birchen,& as he has dark legs he is probably not Wheaten,but could be either Duckwing or Brown based.
