    I Have been hearing a weak crowing coming from one of the pens, Thinking it was my little D'Uccle boy coming of age thought nothing of it! Then i was collecting eggs this am, i heard it from my big pen! He was given to me as a barred cochin, Definately not! He looks like someone tryed breeding a cochin Roo to a Plymouth Rock, hence the not fully feathered legs/ not poofy enough! So i would say plymouth cross. Please help me confirm! Thanks!

    Are those pointy saddle feathers we see on his fanny? The color on the wings and hackles make it look likely, but those saddle feathers reallllllly look pointy!
