    We've had this guy for about 5 years. He came to us dyed pink as someone's cast-off Easter chick at about 6 weeks old. He's very docile and all around lovely.
    He has a dark greet tail, gold neck, some white, and some chestnut color.

    Just curious. One of his girlfriends just hatched four eggs. One looked just like him as a baby (mostly white) but has ear/neck tufts. Mom was an EE. It just got me wondering what he could be.
