    Hello,

    I have a 16wk old chicken that might be a male.
    This chicken was hatched by a hen that was broody, so I took a egg from the coop for her. I don't know who layed the egg, but the broody chicken hatched it. This chicken looks like she/he is a series of breeds. The breeds I have are:

    Rhode Island Reds/Colombian Wyandotte,
    Colombian Wyandottes,
    Silver Laced Wyandottes, (roosters)
    ISA Browns,
    Colombian Wyandotte/Silver Laced Wyandotte,
    And 1 mixed breed hen.
    We don't have any Broilers, so I don't know were she/he got the white from. The colouring is, reddish looking brown feathers, black speckles, all of the body is white and one Colombian Wyandotte feather on it's wing.

    Maybe one of you could tell me what kind of breeds he/she might be?
    Thanks!

    It would be nice if you uploaded a picture. Then it would be easier to tell.

    I think it is indeed a rooster. And what breeds of roosters and hens do you have?

    Do you have a red base color rooster? He looks kind of like a red sexlink cockerel. They are the result of a red/gold gene rooster crossed with a silver gene female.

    I agree. And this could be possible. You said you have RIRs and SLWs? If the rooster is a RIR then that would probably be what it is (RIR rooster X SLW hen)

    That or the hen is a Columbian wyandotte

    It's the other way around. The rooster is a SLW and the hen was probably a RIR.
