Flying monkey poop suggested that the black legs were not necessarily a sure thing that he explained in his post and I understand his point. (thanks ) So by my original thinking because this cockerel and pullet have yellow legs I discounted them as australorp crosses but rather barred rock by cream legbar Based solely on leg color. So here are new pictures of the two in question. I would still believe that these two are barred rock by legbar, but welcome any other suggestions.
I think the cockerel in the top pic is going to be stunning when he finishes feathering, he has streaks of gold in his hackles and throughout his back.Edited by rooboo - 5/23/15 at 1:12pm
