    I was given this rooster and I'm trying to figure out what breed he is. Does anyone out there know? I appreciate your feedback![​IMG]

    Bristow, ok
    He's a mix of Cochin and one or 2 other breeds to get that crest and beard. How many toes?

    I bet it's a Cochin/silkie mix after going back and seeing the comb.

    Looks like a Cochin X silkie. Maybe Araucana ?

    Id say cochin x silkie also....possibly something else in there with the coloring in his neck. Either way still a cool looking roo.

    Yeah looking at the 3rd picture I can see five toes. For sure a Cochin X Silkie.

    My daughter who is 9 just loves him. He sets down when she wants to pick him up. He was raised in the city in confined conditions and seems to have readily acclimated to ranch living. He is so darn cute to watch walking around and getting use to open space and free ranging with my girls.

    Oh dear shall I put my oar in? Definitely halff silkie because of the colour and shape of the comb, but I would say the other half could be faverolle because of the beard.
