    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]This cockerel was hatched from a set of six eggs that were sold as 'golden silky' eggs . Only on of the six was as described when hatched. This cockerel has 5 toes and is booted that is to say fully feathered legs and feet. The skin is flesh coloured like a Pekin. In the picture it is pictured with a Pekin hen it it twice the size. It. Never crows but in every other respect is an active I fully mature cock bird. It does look like a faverole but I,'m not sure what it b? Any ideas ? :/


    I have a video on utube look for
    "My cockerel does not crow " there you'll see the creAture clearly . But it is the larger bird in my profile pic . Ta

    If it's the guy in your profile pic, I think you're right, he looks like a Salmon Faverolles cross cockerel, but it's hard to know what else is in the mix. Flesh should look pinkish (white). Looks standard size so might not be crossed with a bantam at all. A better photo would really help.
