2 year old rooster, not sure about breed.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Several months ago I was given a crested rooster. So far the chicks he has fathered have also had a crest. He is most likely pure. He was part of a group of hatchery choice chicks. I am thinking CCL, but I'm not sure. Anyone have a more experienced guess?

Do you know what hatchery?

 

He's not a Legbar. My thought is one of the hatchery's designer "breeds" like maybe an Olive Egger, with Legbar ancestry. But he doesn't look like any pure bred bird I've familiar with.

Unfortunately, I do not know what hatchery. The person I got him from bought him as a chick from a feed store out of the hatchery choice bin.

Looks like a mixed breed.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Okay, so he is just a random mix then? Oh well, still cute with a great personality.

I've hatched a few of his chicks from a couple different hens. They are still juveniles and haven't fully feathered out yet. I'll just wait and see how well his trait carry to the next generation.

He looks like a spitzhauben mix of some kind, handsome roo though!
