Guess my parents!! (Game) - 10/18/06 01:05 PM

Hey guys. I was a little bored and decided to follow someone else's example and make a game. I'm gonna post a picture, and see what all the responses are. The point is to figure out which parents the pullet came from. If nobody can guess it after an undetermined amount of time, I will give a classification hint! Sound like fun? The bird you are trying to guess is the one with gold feathers. She is clean-legged and has a bluish tinge to her legs!


Good luck! And if you have been reading in the Poultry Genetics section, don't give the answer! Remember, this is for fun, and to see what the heck happens when I play geneticist!

I cant really see the comb but it looks like a small pea to me.

Are the parents Wyandotte and Australorp?

Nope, not a pea comb! But some of the other offspring (all have the same dad) do have a pea comb!

You don't say how old she is so is she still in juvenile feathers ? Her bluish legs suggest red or black araucana but maybe she's orpington or australorp. Since she's reddish I'm picking she's a sex-linked cross therefore her dad will be red, perhaps brown leghorn, or something with a "jungle fowl" look about them

She's just turned 5 months old. I would say she's about 4 and a half in the picture.

I'd guess she came from a cross of Ameracauna and Brown Leghorn. However, she looks like she may have Welsummer. It's a toss up between the Leghorn and Welsummer.

Aw heck; I'm gonna go ahead and vote - Ameracuana and Welsummer!

If the roo was a barred, then this pullet would be barred also. She isn't.

OK, Mikaela- time for the answer!

Re: Guess my parents!! (Game) - 10/25/06 10:22 PM

LOL! Alright, alright! Her father was a Light Brahma rooster, and her mother was a Black Australorp hen! Beautiful isn't she? I want to see how well she lays before I decide to try and recreate the "mistake" bird! smile

Oh, do another game! I liked it, even though I have no educated basis for my guesses. laugh

Re: Guess my parents!! (Game) - 10/26/06 07:31 AM

I'll have to take some more pictures and see what I can come up with! I have alot, but so far...well, you'll just have to see! I'll have to post it in another thread when I decide which one I'm gonna do next! But, there will be a "next!"

We have a pullet that looks almost exactly like this. Her daddy is a "Black Star" (sex-link) and shows barring. Her mama is a buff minorca. So, there is an American class and a Mediterranean class.

Let's see, English... I'm going to show my lack of education here and guess Gold Laced Wyandotte? And the Asiatic... I'm at a complete loss... she has a pheasant look to her so I guess I would guess some Game fowl to be in there too.

That's the best I can do.

What is she?

When I posted my reply, I found there was a page two with the answer.

I will look for your next puzzle. We have some crosses here that might be fun to post.
