    I got this little girl? at the feed store. I was told it was a hen but I am not sure because it mounts the other chickens. It does not crow and my rooster has no issues with it. It has a pea comb and large wattles. Any guesses on a breed, I guessing mix.[​IMG]

    not sure what you mean by doodles? but there are many feed stores that claim to have purebreds and they are mutts. A lot of people have that problem with TSC

    hatchery quality Buff Brahma bantam rooster. Reason he doesn't crow is because you have another roo who is more dominant than him.

    brahma have feathered feet and the coloring isnt right, it isnt even buff

    Thanks everybody! My feed store sells just about everything, not just full breeds. Well I guess I have another rooster. Lets hope it isn't too much for the three little hens.

    That's why I said hatchery quality, the Columbian pattern fits, and I have seen hatchery brahmas without feathered legs too. As for the colour, again hatchery quality, I know one hatchery I use to order from their "buffs" that would pass sooner as a red than any buff I have ever seen.
