Spotted chicken

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

My friend was going to to give me these chickens but i said i wanted to research them first.  They were spotted and i think their name started with a c if anyone knows of a chicken thats spotted it would really help.  Sorry i ccouldn't be more helpful.

Sounds like they could be mollted cochins to me! I'd say it'd be worth the challenge! Good luck to you!

Can you describe the chickens a little better?  What kind of comb do they have?  When you say "spotted" are the white with black spots, black with white spots, brown with white spots?  Are they clean legged or feather legged?  Large fowl or bantam?  Pictures would really help too.  big_smile  We love pictures...

Agreed.

"Spotted" chickens that start with a C can be Mottled Cochins, White Laced Red Cornish (unlikely) and a couple others I can't think of. . .

I actually think its the white laced red one maybe... i think he said cornish not 100%. But they looked like teenage chickens. they had brownish red white and black and I think the spots were black.

I doubt they are the WLR coronish.

Speckled sussex are "heavy" birds, single comb, pink/white legs - not feathered. Their background color should be a mohagany, but hatchery stock has a more red color. Each feather is tipped in black and white, the white on the end and the black before it.

Is that what they look like?

Spangled is a color, not a breed. Could be sussex, orloffs (rare), game birds.....
