    What breed is that? Reminds me of a cookies and cream ice cream or maybe even chocolate chip. Very handsome bird; I might have to add one to the flock.

    The plumage pattern you described is called Silver Laced. There are different breeds with this plumage pattern, including the Sebright, the Wyandotte, and some others.

    Or Cochin or a few others, the color is Silver laced and there are a few breeds that can be Silver laced if that is the color you are refering to.

    I have a SLW's and a Silver Laced Polish. The polish is beautiful.

    Yes, it would be wrong to ask for a hen for Christmas. You need to ask for a PAIR or a TRIO [​IMG]
