    I believe this guy was being used in a breeding program for wheatens and maybe blue wheatens... He can't be splash can he?

    Any ideas what might result if he's paired with black hens?

    He is not a recognized color of Ameraucana and I doubt it has a name. I hope no one was using him in a Blue Wheaten program or they really messed up, IMO. He's a handsome EE boy, not an Ameraucana.

    maybe I'm mistaken.. he wasn't retained after all [​IMG]
    I think I probably posted this on the wrong board.. I'll move over to the genetics board..
