    Has anyone ever seen this color before, if so, does it have a name? I got this little guy as a random in my order this past July and I've never seen anything like this color pattern before! Also I know they shouldn't be roosting on that fence, it wasn't there permanently :). Thank you so much for any help!

    That's an Easter Egger. He isn't a standard color, but genetically he is silver base color, with the columbian pattern, and red leakage.

    He is an EE, they are not really standard colors.
