  Breast Feather from Spangled Wyandotte Cockerel

 The pictures on this page and the next   are just a collection of odds and ends -some of which are just curiosities that I can't work out - any suggestions about the genetics of the the pale partridge and the gold laced Wyandottes most welcomed.

 
 
 

 

 

 

 

A pair of young pullet-breeding gold laced males; identical except for one having normal red hackles the other orange hackles. Why?

 

 

 

 Blacks with red hackles - rather handsome but how would one do it again? Bit of E, maybe ER? with eWh Ml and Mh?

The PB Partridge Wyandotte Cocks exhibited at Grant Brereton's show: Standard large fowl (he weighed about 14lbs), normal bantam cock and a miniature/dwarf cock  who was tiny.  The latter had a always stood with his chest very puffed out,  eventually he took to falling over backwards especially if he got in a fight.  

Both are the same age; the small one matured extreme slowly but was always healthy - not sure if she ever laid but didn't want to breed mega-midgets anyway.

 

 

This pullet is not blue; the lacing comes from a combination of Birchen, pattern gene, Columbian and Dark brown.  She is the F2  Hamburg Wyandotte cross
