    Hello all, I had to go rescue a few Rhode Island Reds from a local individual and this had to come with them, I was curious what it is. Aporeciate the input...

    Sorry for the terrible pics... 20180327_181113.jpg 20180327_181108.jpg

    Looks to be a gorgeous cockerel - Silkie mix. :love I know nothing about crossbreeds, but possibly some Cochin in there? :)

    Agree its a cockerel. I'm also clueless about crosses. Wonder if there might be some Golden/Silver Duckwing OEGF in its background?

    Thanks all, come to find out the owner had some silkies but not sure what else it's crossed with. I'm like you all, not familiar with cross breeds at all. I appreciate all your posts. He is nice looking...glad he is in a good home.

    Hope none of your chickens will drown in the kiddie pool- trying to get a drink. It does happen.
