    Hi guys,

    I got a little cornish cross chick today...not the fat white ones. [​IMG] She is so funny, I'd really like to figure out what she is crossed with.

    The owner said she didn't know the roosters breed....
    She has green feet, no tail, and feathers on her neck that seem turned the wrong way(up side down) but I can't seem to turn them right.

    How Funny???

    She is mostly light grey with a splash of red across her chest.

    Really need to add picture.

    What do you think?

    And what would that color be called?

    Well I figured it out. She's a Cornish Aruacona cross. The "weird" feathers are ear tufts coming in and it makes sense with the no tail feathers. Can't wait to see what color eggs she lays. ^.^

    Funniest cutest little button I ever saw.

    Still no pics...BUT I've named her Kiwi. Not after the fruit but the bird because she is shaped just like one minus the giant beak. [​IMG]

    And I guess her color is just lavender with red bleed through.
