    Ok I though I knew this one's parents-

    Silkie/RIR

    RIR (size, comb)
    Silkie (skin, fluffy feathers (all hard just has more fluff)

    So what do y'all think?

    (has spur bumps and black feet, four toes each foot (three forward one backward).

    NO clue WHY there are white earlobes - maybe its some other cross. Same as General Black?

    doesn't look like a Silkie/RIR cross to me... What other hens and roos do you have that could be possible parentage?

    Hens: Ancona, Barred Rock, Black Minorca, Blue Andalusian, Brown Leghorn, Buff Brahma, Dark Cornish, EE, Partridge Rock, Rhode Island Red, Silver Spangled Hamburg, White Cochin and White Rock.

    Definitely no Silkie or RIR in there.

    This girl is part Blue Andalusian, and the other part. . . You must have another rooster in there or not what is listed, because neither of the two mentioned can create this. [​IMG]
