Any idea on Sinbad's breed?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Eggsalad, Jul 29, 2013.

  1. Sinbad is approximately 16-20 weeks old. Black Wattles, comb, skin, legs, ears. No crowing, but very talkative, double spurred, tassled

    . Very docile and quite, shy but curious. Long, sleek, black is very black, some beetle green. May be second generation from Greenfire Farms, One Earth Farms, or similar type breeder.

    Looks like a Silkie mix, though if it has some ancestry from Greenfire Farms, it could very well be some sort of rare breed mix.

    yea i think its a silkie mix i once crossed black silkies and old english game and got bird very very similar to this
     
  4. I have no problem with the mix idea, he was one of 72 rescues. Beautiful. I have searched and searched, my other thoughts are Sumatra or even Cemani mixes.

  7. Thanks for the info, still interested in any thoughts. This is one rooster I am keeping just because. He is gorgeous in a romantic chicken kind of way, like a mystery man! I appreciate the compliments!
