    IMG_4432.JPG This guy (Teacup) is as tall as my dog. He was a "mystery rare" chick. What the heck is he? And is that blue or lavender? He's less than a year old ( most of the ladies around him are a few years older).

    When he crows, he sounds like a cross between a monkey and a train. :) Thanks!

    Looks like an Orpington, pretty fella. Looks lavender with chocolate leakage.

    @WVduckchick?

    Thanks! Do Orpingtons get this giant? He had this kind of red on his back too -. Is that chocolate?

    :confused:

    I'd guess jersey giant also. and colorwise, I've never seen lavender leak. I'm honestly not sure it can, since it takes both lavender parents to show lavender anyway. I'd say blue with chocolate, maybe?
