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!
