I had been considering putting him over some splash blue columbian hens (splash blue lights). At least when he was looking more like a red columbian. Now not sure what to make of him.

All my other cockerels in these projects have historically had either single laced breasts, or the solid dark breast of double laced, or partridge patterns. Other than when columbian had recently been brought in to improve something with the project, resulting in poor partial lacing, which is not the case with the red birds.

I have limited experience with colors/patterns outside of those mentioned. I would appreciate any ideas/experience here.
