    [​IMG]This guy was living in an aviary with some budgies and a few bantams. We took him on as was for the cull otherwise. Can anyone help us with what bred(s) he could be? 8 months old. He's huge!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join to our flock. I'm not certain of the breeds in him, but he's definitely a mixed breed rooster, and certainly a beautiful one. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

    I don't personally see any Silkie in him, but you can post a pic of him on our What Breed or Gender is This? section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this, and let our experts there take a look at him. :eek:)
