    Possible Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, though colouring is off. :)

    Either a super bad quality hatchery Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, or a mix of one with a production red bird.

    I agree. Colouring on the chest is as good as it gets on this boy. He's pretty though. I'll give him that :)

    I agree, he's supposed to be a splash laced wyandotte.

    Never heard of it. That does seem to fit the description better.

    It's a byproduct of trying to breed Blue Laced Reds. Breeding blue to blue produces like 25% splashes like Andalusians. I would have to agree he could potentially be one, but I'm thrown by his straight comb (unless I'm seeing things wrong).

    Full view the second picture, he does have a rose comb. His little feathers are spiky and do appear to give the illusion of a single comb.

    Thanks everyone! he is still a pretty young rooster (around or under 6 months) but he is big for that age i think.
